A witty and truthful drama focusing on a gang of four young nurses in Leeds who live, work and play together. It’s an upbeat and honest expose of nursing in the modern NHS in which the girls face life, death and lunacy on the wards of St Margaret’s. Every night they let off steam, with a dangerous appetite for uncomplicated sex and misbehaviour â€“ and if the drugs don’t work, it’s probably because the junior doctor’s taken them.
Anji (Sunetra Sarker) and Beth (Jo Joyner) are the babies of the gang. Anji may be set on an arranged marriage, and sex-kitten Beth has yet to meet the rich consultant of her dreams, but that’s not going to stop them hunting down any other man they fancy in the meantime. And what they want, they usually get. Single mum Lia (Louise Delamere) is sharp-tongued and funny. Having mastered the art of sympathetic detachment, she’s a great nurse but a lousy mother. Lovely Kate (Kaye Wragg) is the acting sister; She’d cope better with the sexual politics if she remembered the first rule of nursing: doctors are the enemy. But Kate falls for them instead.
