Director of Nursing Services

Gregarious and mischievous, frank and decisive, Director of Nursing Colette runs Holby’s wards with sparky humour, vivacity and warmth.

Tending to see in black and white, she can be gung-ho in her judgements, but whether championing or challenging, everyone knows exactly where they stand. Colette is fiercely loyal and protective of those she cares about.

She prizes authenticity and can’t stand phoniness. An inspiring leader, she’s ready to take any doctor to task for her nurses, but as a private person who rarely asks for help, she can leave herself feeling isolated.
