Despite worsening symptoms from her brain tumour, Jac Naylor is all set for an important meeting with the Clinical Strategy Directorate to discuss pulling Holby out of ‘Recovery Support’. 

Jac, Hanssen, and Max are surprised that Regina Marriot is the new CSD director and she wants a tour of the hospital. Jac doesn’t have time to show her around, though, as she’s overseeing a crucial operation on Darwin.

Max is extremely worried about Jac, who promises to get through the presentation then focus on herself. Later, when Jac makes a breakthrough in theatre, Regina’s impressed. Can Jac now save the hospital - or could she be in jeopardy?

Nicky McKendrick (Belinda Owusu) is back from maternity leave and operating on Darwin, but she’s forgotten to arrange childcare for baby Juliet. Scrambling for a babysitter, Nicky asks Eli’s wife Amelia for help, unaware of her recent miscarriage.
