About The Clinic

As the new series of The Clinic hits our screens, we find Cathy laying in a coma fighting for her life after being struck down by Niall Boylan. 

Daisy returns from her trip abroad with Conor to be by her stricken cousin’s side and to provide some comfort to Dan, who has been keeping a constant vigil by Cathy’s bedside since the accident, willing her to live.

New receptionist Ruairi is introduced to us as he balances working in the Clinic with his other life as a DJ in a trendy Dublin nightclub, while Practice Manager Cara bumps up her status by overseeing the building of her new office.

Liam’s son Ian is in trouble yet again.  This time he’s caught joyriding in his friend’s car and is asked to leave his school after too many warnings of bad behaviour. Liam is beside himself and now must somehow find the money to send Ian to a private school, putting a severe financial strain on the family.

Lorcan and Clodagh continue to enjoy their growing closeness as they work together to keep the Clinic afloat in the absence of two of their doctors.  Everyone is under immense pressure as a result of this staff shortage, and Julia eventually agrees with Lorcan and Cara to bring in a locum to help relieve the workload.
