Season 8 continues to explore complex medical and personal stories on the midwifery and district nursing rounds. It is now 1964 and times are changing, from the introduction of the contraceptive pill and the availability of a new cancer-screening program, to the new construction of high-rise buildings. The nuns and nurses continue to face a variety of challenging issues including cleft palate, sickle cell and illegal abortion. And for one on the team, romance could be on the horizon.
