Darkly comic series that offers a glimpse inside a world a million miles away from traditional hospital dramas. This is the dull, dreary, dog end of the health service with paperwork to fill in, bottoms to wipe and the drama played out in a thousand tiny acts of revenge and kindness, shining a light on the way workplace relationships play out and mapping out the life of a hospital through six shifts (five days and one night) on B4 ward.
Hilary's 'Icing the Cake' initiative is spreading... but not always successfully. Best behaviour has a habit of bringing out the worst. Pippa has a lunch appointment with Peter, while Den and Hilary have a difficult matter to deal with. Kim embarks on a vendetta of a different kind. Will they ice each other's cakes?
