Whilst Penny looks to ‘find herself’ at a rival hospital, Hugh puts his all into bringing the new clinic up to speed. Meanwhile, Sharna inspires Matt to take Whyhope beers to the world and Ajax gets an extra set of hands around the farm: Tom.

Hugh and Penny set aside their differences to fight for the rights of a terminally ill young mother. As she faces criminal charges, Meryl ropes in Hayley to hide evidence of her corruption from Sharna.
