Holby City spoilers: who is Oliver Valentine?

Oliver “Ollie” Valentine worked at Holby City Hospital from 2009 to 2018.

He was introduced with his sister Penny. At first he was portrayed as the “Golden Boy” compared to her and always seemed to be preferred.

However, he quickly turned around after making a number of medical mistakes. His mistakes became so obvious that Oliver was forced to admit that he had cheated on his medical exam. He cheated by swapping his newspaper for Penny’s and making it repeat for a year.

Although he was not qualified, Oliver was allowed to continue to practice medicine.

It got worse when his sister Penny was killed before he had time to apologize, and he hit rock bottom.

Unable to lose her, he subsequently turned to drugs and alcohol.

During his time at Holby, Oliver was referred to as the “hospital bike” because of his many romantic relationships.
