"High Tide" was the twenty-seventh episode of Series 30, and the 984th episode of Casualty overall. This episode sees the arrival of paramedic Jez Andrews, the departure of staff nurse Ben 'Lofty' Chiltern and the death of Emilie Groome.


Iain is dumped with yet another paramedic partner, Jez. He doesn’t make a great first impression, turning up on the wrong day, but Iain agrees to take him out on rounds.

With the aim of taking Cal, Ethan and Emilie to a hostel, Emilie tells her sons that she wishes she could go to a particular bay one last time. Cal decides to hijack the ambulance to take her there, leaving Iain and Jez at the side of the road.

They manage to make it to their old holiday destination at the beach and as Emilie takes a turn for the worse, they decide to open their results from the genetics lab. But will both turn out negative or will a dark cloud appear?

Lofty arrives at work despondently and has to attend a panel to discuss what happened with Diana. He comes face to face with the consequences of his actions and decides to miss the hearing to help Lana instead. He has a life-changing decision to make - but will he make the right choice?
