As Sid, Karen, Valerie and Bear gather in the staffroom to try the dispensers they work when Valerie and Karen put their hands under them but don’t when Sid and Bear do the same. Finally, the penny drops, and they all look to each other hoping they have got it wrong.

With Ruhma suspended, Emma is tasked with looking after her patients. She meets spoilt and aspirational, Chloe who is indulged by her husband, Greg. Chloe is not impressed by not getting to see Ruhma and has very specific ideas on how her pregnancy and birth should be.
