Background:
Guy joined Holby City Hospital as the new Chief Execeutive Officer, he lasted in the role for 2 years. Guy stepped down from the post and started to focus more onto the surgery side of things in April 2015, once he got told that he can not carry on performing in theatre and still be the Chief Executive Officer of Holby City Hospital. Guy was unhappy about this but he chose Neurosurgery over being the CEO, he apologized to Elliot Hope about demoting him from being the Clinical Lead of Darwin and later reinstated him before he stepped down as the CEO, he then made himself the Clinical Lead of Keller ward. Guy is later unimpressed when he finds out the old CEO who he took over from has got his job as the new CEO of the hospital as his plans for the new Nuero surgey suite will not be happening as Henrik Hanssen doesn’t want the new unit in Holby City.

When Valerie (Guy’s mum) was admitted to Darwin after having heart complications. Zosia began treating her, both unaware of their relationship. Jac returned to the department following leave and her and Guy clashed over Valerie’s treatment. Although Guy took no pity on her, it was decided that she was unfit for the new experimental procedure and Guy was left feeling guilty. She apologised to him for what had happened in the past and he was able to get Jac to perform the operation. Shortly before it commenced, Valerie asked for her son’s forgiveness, but he simply ignored her request and assured her that she’d be alright. However, Valerie suffered from extensive bleeding during surgery and Jac and Ollie were unable to save her. Guy was angry and upset, but later thanked Jac for going ahead with it. However, she simply told him that it was entirely her choice, that he couldn’t ever coerce her into doing anything, and that she’d get rid of him from her department in the future.
