Essie Harrison has always done her best to juggle her job as transplant coordinator at Holby with being foster mum to teen Parker Whitfield. But, this week, it could all change!
Kim, Parker’s mum, has just been released from prison and Essie waits nervously for her to arrive at the hospital to spend the day with Parker.
‘When Essie took on Parker, it was a big shock for her to suddenly have this very different life, but I always knew she’d be a great mum,’ says Kaye Wragg, who plays her.
Essie’s keen for mother and son to bond, but then Kim reveals she’s moving to Gibraltar to be with her parents. Essie can’t believe Kim’s going to pass up the opportunity to rebuild her relationship with Parker – that’s when Kim drops the bombshell that she intends to take him to Gibraltar with her!
Struggling with the idea that she could lose Parker, Essie throws herself into her work. She’s soon dealt another blow when she learns her role as transplant coordinator has been axed, leaving her future uncertain.
Later, Parker’s admitted with stomach pains but Kim realises he’s faking it so he can stay in Holby. Essie admits to boyfriend Raf that she’s not ready to let the teen go. Will she have to say goodbye?
