Sam Nicholls

Headstrong and fearless, Sam is passionate about saving lives and not afraid to take risks. Before coming to Holby, Sam was an army medic who served in Afghanistan - where she thrived on the adrenaline rush of combat medicine. Sam is a brilliant mate, great to share a pint and banter with, but she’s definitely not one to overshare.


  • Sam holds the rank of Major in the army.
  • She sometimes struggles with ungrateful patients and their emotional baggage.
  • She’s a tomboy and hates high heels and makeup.
