CASUALTY’s New Nurse

ALEX WALKINSHAW is the brand new regular on BBC1’s medical drama Casualty, and his first episode airs this Saturday 30th June at 9:10pm.

ALEX played popular character Smithy in ITV’s The Bill for seven years before starring in two series of Waterloo Road. He now makes the move to Holby to join the Casualty ED as new nurse Adrian ‘Fletch’ Fletcher in the world’s longest running medical drama Casualty, bringing a sense of humour to the nursing team.

Fletch trained as a mechanic first, but lost his business and found himself with a family to support but no real idea about what to do. When his wife Keila went into labour with their third child and found herself in the emergency department, it was the optimistic nursing staff who were there for her and saw them through. There and then, Fletch decided to retrain as a nurse. So, he arrives back in Holby City ED, the birth place of his daughter and his inspiration. In his opening episode on Saturday, Lloyd (played by Michael Obiora) is assigned as Fletch’s mentor but finds his nose is put out of joint when he discovers that Fletch is a self-assured, mature nursing graduate with a great sense of humour – far from the naïve timid baby nurse he was expecting!

ALEX says: “[Fletch] is the ultimate cheeky chappy – the kind of entertaining bloke you’d want to go down the pub and have a laugh with, whether you’re male or female. He’s into football, rugby, beer and beautiful women – only to flirt with and admire though – he’s a devoted family man which just makes him all the more attractive. Personally, I can’t wait to get to know him better myself.”

Now filmed in HD, Casualty continues to entertain Saturday night audiences with a medicinal mixture of high-action drama, reflection of social and health issues and the everyday lives and loves of the staff at Holby City hospital’s emergency department. Tune in on Saturday to see ALEX‘s arrival, and you can watch an interview with him below, which contains some sneak peeks of his first episode.

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!

    It is essential to consider the area where the infusion set is positioned, which is similar to the use of an insulin pen. The areas along the side and front of the stomach are considered most suitable. However, the set can be positioned in a number of other areas including the upper arm and outside the thigh. Move the position where the infusion set is placed using the clock face method. Other methods can be used, but you can use the one that is most comfortable for you. Take note of the sites that you used on paper or the infusion set to ensure proper rotation of the site.
