Eight years after her life-saving kidney transplant, Frankie is now in her second year as a practising doctor, caring for patients suffering the same way she did and working under Renal boss Chad Berger – the very doctor who saved her life.
Frankie takes on the system to save a patient and lands in trouble. Lou learns it's not always wise to have an affair with a boss, and Tabb questions his ability as a doctor. Frankie learns that Berger is as vulnerable as anyone.
When a patient wishes to turn off the device that's keeping her alive, the team step in to dissuade her. Lou is caught between a rock and a hard place when Frankie undertakes an RCA into a patient's death, threatening her relationship with her bosses.
On the eve of an investigation into a possible medical error resulting in the death of a patient, Frankie realises that all doctors are fallible when faced with the reality of a health system that can't always cater for everyone.
Inspired by the man who saved her life, Frankie Bell alters course to become a doctor herself, working and learning in the high stakes, high pressure world of the cardio-thoracic and renal wards of a major teaching hospital.
