Adrain "Fletch" Fletcher BSc (Hons) (born 18 February 1975) is the current Director of Nursing Services in Holby City Hospital. He joined AAU as the Ward Manager in 2014 shortly after departing his job as a senior staff nurse in the hospital's Emergency Department.
Cheeky, charming and utterly incorrigible when it comes to chatting up women, Fletch is Holby’s Del Boy: a ducking and diving ex-car salesman with twinkly wit and a ready wink. Fletch came to nursing late - re-training after his business went bust. He needed a steady job to support his kids, but people-person Fletch soon proved himself a natural carer.
Straight-talking and nobody’s fool, Fletch can dish out tough love when he needs to, but behind it, he’s as big-hearted as they come; a dedicated dad always willing to go the extra mile for those in need.
Fletch is the ultimate cheeky chappy - the kind of entertaining bloke you'd really want to go down the pub and have a laugh with, whether you're male or female. Although Fletch accepts he's starting at the bottom at Holby, he brings a lot of life experience to the job and has an air of authority and maturity.
While he's prepared to take orders from those younger than him and knows he has lots still to learn in terms of, he isn't afraid to talk back or question something he disagrees with.
In his 30s, Adrian Fletcher - universally known as Fletch - is a little older than your average band 6 nurse, having first trained as a mechanic.
During the recession, Fletch lost the successful business he'd built up and suddenly found himself without a job. With a third baby on the way and unable to provide for his family for the first time, Fletch needed a steady job. When his wife went into labor in the, it was the optimistic staff who saw the couple through. There and then Fletch decided to retrain as a nurse.
Time at Holby City Hospital (2014-)
Now Fletch is in Holby City he did meet up with his old fiancée Colette Steward and she wasn't pleased to see Fletch. And also Fletch has also helped Raffaello Di Lucca.
Fletch’s wife Natalie arrived into AAU after her friend had a fall on a night out. They were both considerably intoxicated and while Fletch and the team on AAU sorted her friend out Fletch sent Natalie to sleep off her hangover. However unbeknownst to him, Natalie had also had a fall hitting her head. She died from head injuries and Fletch blamed himself for not spotting the signs.
