Beverley was a pupil nurse who took an epileptic fit while on duty on Katy's ward. Her job was in jeopardy since she had never disclosed the fact that she was epileptic. It emerged that as a young child she had several fits but her parents never told her about them as they felt ashamed. Since the condition could be treated by medication she was allowed to continue her training. After qualifying as an S.E.N. she moved to the new hospital with Rose where she specialised in renal care.
Pupil Nurse Beverley Slater was played by Judith Jacob, who eventually ended up in Eastenders.
