STAFF AND PATIENTS IN HOSPITAL BUT NOT MENTIONED IN BOOK
Mrs Amanthea Fatebenefratelli-Stroudl (submitted by Paola)
"Ant" for her friends and for the colleagues she pretends to be friendly with. Successful business woman, recovering from a benzodiazepine addiction. Has a compulsion to change the colour of her nail enamel every three or four hours, more often if the people in the room don't match the colour. Has four cell phones: one for her family, one for business, one for her Schnautzer dog, and one that she keeps hidden and won't talk about; this one gets stolen one day while she is in a meeting with her anxiety management therapist. She then attempts suicide by drinking nail varnish remover.
And the other fantastic entries.

Strides through the wards but then clips his (slightly longer) left leg on the edge of a bedstead. Commanding yet fallible

Johnny Disappointment (Submitted by Natalie B, http://www.myspace.com/nat_box)
An orderly who always thought he could do better, whose mother would have liked him to be a doctor, and spends most of his time smoking, dodging his boss and stealing things from the patient's lockers
Michelangelo 'Micky Finn' Eduardo Sanchez. (submitted by Kevin)
Sleazy. Greasy. Hispanic porter who peddles his own 'Holistic' remedies to anyone desperate enough to buy (chiefly Zeke and Sukhveer). Cropper's bitch.
Eyak Selleugra (submitted by Eyak Selleugra)

Mika Lasseborunnen (submitted by ledasdaughter)
Mika Lasseborunnen, the Finnish guy who understands noone and is understood by noone, and nobody really knows what he's doing in the hospital, though he has had a bed for a few years now and always looks a little ill.
Vince Reno. (Submitted by Ryland Death)
Cop. Part of a task force recruited to take out meth cookers. Comes in after he's killed someone. To see the body before it's trucked to the morgue. Doesn't talk to anyone, flashes his badge, smokes a cigarette with the stiff, leaves. No one says anything about his smoking because he's fucking scary.
Agnes Ergnott (submitted by Jacque Badeau)
Night staff cleaner. A frail, obsessive compulsive old lady who washes hands in industrial strength bleach pre and post shift to be 'clean'. Stays in the shadows, does not like to be looked at. Her family abandoned her for undisclosed reasons.
Sadie McTavish (submitted by Karjon)
Hebridean septuagenarian who works in the voluntary tea room. Non-pc to point of blatant racism - expects everyone to ignore her 'foibles' because she's 'seventy-three, you know.'
Emeline Fishlock-Cranch. (submitted by Andy)
An over-sexed vegan, yoga-teacher and serial bit-part player in BBC period dramas just dying to have her own one-woman show. Or build an eco house in New Zealand, depending on how she feels on any given day. Boyfriend currently in hospital after a motorcycle accident and enjoying the time out from a somewhat intense five-year relationship.
Magenta Mimi Lazar (submitted by Annie)
Tai chi injury.
James Hearst (submitted by Carl BAUER) Patient in the childrens cancer ward. Has been for 24 years. No one has the heart to move him to a more adult ward.
Yordanos Aurelio (submitted by Nic)
Nurse. Male. Illegitimate love-child of an Italian colonial Eritrean man named Aurelio Merolla. Named by his mother. Sent to Europe for an education so as not to bring shame to a proud family. Often spends free time with the Porters, where he walks more upright than among the nursing staff. Severely fascinated and confused by Suzi Lerph.
