With over 30 years’ experience working in technology and 20 years’ managing and leading digital transformation across the public sector, Nicola is the CIO at Portsmouth Hospital NHS Trust.
Nicola was raised by NHS professionals, is mother to a junior doctor and is now a carer. She therefore frequently sees for herself what those receiving healthcare services experience. Her overriding passion is the provision of citizen-centric solutions and innovations that support new models of healthcare delivery. She brings expertise from sectors beyond the NHS, where she directed the implementation of student journey and public relationship management programmes that transformed the way services are delivered and how they engage with service users.
