Donna quits Holby!

After seven years at Holby City, nurse Donna Jackson bids farewell this week when boyfriend Kieran pops a surprise question. Having been injured recently while a war nurse, and dealing with the amputation of his leg, Kieran is being moved to a rehabilitation centre in the north. Rather than leave Donna behind, Kieran asks his girlfriend to join him and make a new start. Though Donna finds leaving mentor Ric behind, eventually she plucks up the courage to start afresh and says her final goodbyes. Elsewhere, Sahira struggles to meet Hanssen's demands when dealing with a difficult patient - but could she have a secret ally in Jac? Chrissie learns how not to alienate the nurses...
