Band 5 Nurse

David is a shy, thoughtful and withdrawn man who struggles with the social complexities of the world. His awkwardness leads to him lacking confidence in conversation, meaning that he often comes out with dull, inane comments - so he favours silence. But he’s a good and diligent nurse, who follows instructions well and goes about his job efficiently and quietly. David is a brilliant listener, and although he doesn’t speak often, what he does say is often insightful and brilliant. He would love to be different; he would love to unleash the bold, confident side of his personality, but is too afraid of the consequences.

David has recently had some time off, but the Department of Work and Pensions decided that now he’s now ready to return. David may be a great nurse, but the rest of the team, especially Robyn, are baffled as to why David is the way he is and are determined to bring him out of his shell. Until then, you’ll find David lingering nervously in the background, brimming with secrets and mystery…
