Episode 4 of 6

The most dysfunctional General Practice in the West Country is threatened with investigation for not being average. Dr Jeremy is seeing private patients, and Dr Roy gives up drugs.

It's a red letter day for the Polyoaks surgery. Against all the odds, Practice Manager Monica (Polly Frame) seems actually to have balanced the books. Jeremy (David Westhead) is seeing private patients and is building up a nice little client list, Roy (Nigel Planer) has seen the light and is threatening to abandon drugs completely and Hugh (Simon Greenall) is strangely pleased to have been assessed as officially average by the Care Quality Commission.

What can possibly go wrong? And how soon?

The beleaguered West Country clinic carries on indomitably in its struggle against targets, government initiatives and patients. Dr. Phil Hammond and David Spicer continue painting their satirical portrait of a thoroughly modern health service.
