the programme here were Susan Franklyn (as administrator Valerie Sinclair), Paul Lacoux (as Dr. David Rowe), Julie Graham, Shaheen Khan (student nurses Alison McGrellis and Kiran Joghill), and Carol Leader (receptionist Sandie Timkins).

all of the incoming actors left 
this series at its conclusion.

was killed off in Burn OutElla Wilder (paramedic Shirley Franklin) and
Christopher Rozycki (porter Kuba Trzcinski) both departed in the finale.
