Kate started work at Holby A&E as a Staff Nurse, she had been promoted to sister after Ash’s departure, but Trevor (husband) was in a vegetative state and doctors held little hope that he would recover. Kate did not want to give up on him, but when he contracted a virus, her sons and daughter persuaded her that it would be better not to treat him, and Trevor was allowed to die.
Kate seemed to have recovered from her loss, but later saw her having more problems. She started shoplifting, taking clothes and make-up, some of which she gave away to her colleagues. She was caught, and resigned from her job shortly afterwards.
