Nicky’s conscientious, talented and clever.  She is from a struggling working-class background and has to prove herself at Holby. She progresses from F1 to F2 and decides to specialise in cardiothoracic surgery. She also enjoys a party lifestyle.

Nicky arrives at Holby at the end of Series 19 with other F1 Meena, having been transferred from St. Francis’. Hanssen is determined to protect his staff and their wellbeing following the recent shooting, and gives the strict instruction that Meena and Nicky do not treat any patients, but only observe. Despite their friendship, Nicky and Meena often find themselves competing against eachother. In another episode, Nicky jeopardises her career when she treats patient Dan Chambers. Dan is an old school friend of Nicky’s and the pair have sex the night before he is admitted to Darwin . Nicky realises that Dan has nearly beaten another patient to death the evening before. He reveals he took intimate photographs of their night together in the hope it scares her from informing the police. Her mentor Mo convinces Nicky to report him and she is left scared by Dan’s behaviour.
