This article covers a real-world subject which should not be taken as part of the Holby universe.

"Starting Out" is the second episode of series 26 and the 783rd episode of Casualty overall. The episode sees the arrival of nurses Lloyd Asike and Scarlett Conway.


Charlie launches into his spiel about the "importance of caring", as he welcomes Scarlett and Lloyd to Holby ED. Lloyd is confident and gets off to a racing start – saving the life of his first patient in resus – but Scarlett is nervous and seems convinced that her skills lie more in flirting with consultants than in patient care.

Across town, Harry has also got first day nerves. He is immediately involved in an altercation with problem student Lee. When a more experienced teacher also gets it wrong and lashes out, Harry is forced to choose between the student and his colleague.
