A successful business entrepreneur and founder of My Liferaft. Nicola set up the first centralised electronic clinical trial records solution for the pharmaceutical industry in 1998.

MyLiferaft is a successful personal management solution for care and health data belonging to the person, with data being owned by the person and shared with the care circle as well as health and social care professionals as required.

As a mother, Nicola’s 1st hand knowledge of looking after her daughter Faith, who had multiple complex special needs, created a desire to make sure other parents and carers in her position were better supported.

In this open, honest and moving conversation, Nicola talks about her family life, the challenges and joy of being a carer and gives some candid advice for carers across the UK.
