Dr. Finlay's surgery is visited by 13 year-old Hannah Berry who brings in her two younger sisters when they appear unwell. He finds that Hannah is mature beyond her years and wonders what her family situation is about. He learns from Brenda Maitland that Hannah's mother works in a local factory and that her father works somewhere in England. He also learns that she's not going to school. Dr. Neil meanwhile continues to fret about his misdiagnosis of little Robbie Hamilton. He tries to get his hands on a new drug that may save him. Janet puts a card in the local shop window advertising her job at Arden House but is not very pleased when Angus tells her that his niece Rhona Swanson may be staying on beyond their planned wedding day.
