"A Real Shame" was the thirty-second episode of series 25 and the 766th episode of Casualty overall.


Jay's results have arrived but he is too scared to open them. Receiving an irate call from Charlie about his lack of commitment to Ruth, Jay decides to visit her. Ruth wants to know where he has been but Jay is unable to tell her the truth. Eventually, Miriam persuades Jay to let her open the results for him and she is delighted to reveal that he has the all clear. Perhaps now he can confess to everybody what's been bothering him for the past few weeks.

It's time for the board to decide who should be the sole Clinical Lead and Jordan is angry to learn that they will take the staff's appraisals of him and Miriam into account. Jordan knows that he won't win in a popularity contest and behaves like a bear with a sore head all day. With the results revealed at the end of the day, will frosty Jordan or people-friendly Miriam prevail?
