Coronation Street is dominated by medical traumas and mishaps next week as two men struggle in the wake of terrible news, while Roy Cropper (David Neilson) has worries of his own.

Meanwhile, Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) is still trying to get his head around his potential diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, knowing that he could face a terminal decline.
As he tries to get answers one way or another, he makes a surreptitious call, not yet ready to share his fears with his loved ones.
