Kate joined on 26 March 2000 and left on 26 May 2006.
Kate set up Riverside with her husband, Mac. They had a son, Ciaran, but their marriage collapsed when Kate fell in love with a priest.
Tragically, her happiness was short lived. Father David died whilst trying to help at a road traffic accident. In her grief, Kate turned away from the church. The abduction of her son tested her further. But following his safe return, Kate regained her belief.
In January 2003, Kate returned to Best Practice as the receptionist. When Julia took over as Practice Manager and remarried Mac, things blew up between the two women. But eventually they managed to put their differences aside.
In 2004 Kate left for Ireland with a new love, Dr Mike Miles, but the relationship quickly ended. Kate then began a torrid affair with Mac whilst he was visiting Ciaran. Julia found out when she spotted them together at a health retreat and insisted that Mac leave. Following Julia's wishes, the pair started a new life together in Ireland.
