As this month marks National Eczema week we thought it would be the perfect time to talk to Nicola.

What was the first record you ever bought?

Billy Connolly – Stainless Steel Wellies.

Name one thing you couldn’t live without?

A nice hot bath.

How would your friends and colleagues describe you?

My colleague told me that I am: positive, supportive, hardworking, friendly, quirky, strong, knowledgeable and approachable – the money is in the post!

Which three people, living or dead, would you invite to a dinner party and why?

Billy Connolly, Winton Churchill and Dan Snow. It’s a mixture of humour, history and sport.

What’s your favourite sport?

I like swimming and running, because I am a massive park run advocate.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

I would like a magic wand. I always say to patients ‘if only I had a magic wand’.

What was the last thing that made you smile?

Boris Johnson’s puppy Dilyn.

What talent do you wish you had?

I am a big fan of history and would love to be able to recall all of the dates and facts. Now that would be a pub quiz super power!

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Sitting by the sea with a glass of wine.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you take with you?

Ray Mears Survival book, a knife and a boat!

How would you like to be remembered?

Passionate and driven.
