(Vivienne McKone)

Julie Stevens took over as receptionist at the start of series 4. Rather prone to being distracted by Jack-the-lad porter Jimmy Powell, Julie was not particularly good at her job. Rather naive and inexperienced, Julie liked to give diagnosis on the patients herself (though she didn't have a clue what she was on about). Jimmy chatted up Julie and she agreed to go out on a date with him. But the night went awry when Jimmy had too much to drink and started coming on to Julie too strongly. Julie wouldn't speak to Jimmy during the next shift but she eventually accepted his apology. In another episode Julie got in trouble for giving police confidential information about a mugger. That was typical of Julie, act first,think later. She was replaced for series 5 by the far more sensible and responsible Helen Green.
