Until 2011, Sam Nicholls was stationed here as an army medic, where she worked alongside Iain Dean, even having an affair with him. In July that year, Sam was called out to a tea house where a suicide bombing had taken place. During the investigation of the premises, Sam mistook an innocent civilian reaching for his inhaler as one of the bombers and shot him dead. (CAS: "Under Fire") This contributed to her leaving the army and returning to Holby where her husband Dylan Keogh worked. (CAS: "Mea Culpa")
