Season 10 Synopsis
This series, created by uber-author Michael Crichton, is set in the Emergency Room of a busy Chicago hospital. It follows the doctors and nurses through both their personal and professional lives and draws you in to their trials and tribulations.
An action-filled season that moved rapidly between the Chicago ER and Africa.
Dr Carter returns from Africa with a new take on medical practice but has to go back when he hears that Dr Kovac is missing. He is forced to reassess his relationship with Abby.
He then chooses to remain behind in Africa and work at the local clinics. While there he meets Makemba, a volunteer AIDS worker and quickly begins to fall in love.
The hospital suffers a tragedy when a paramedic helicopter crashes on the roof, killing a senior staff member.
