Dr Nicole Samuel, The PSC


Team Leader Consultant of the Year

Nicole is a leader in the Strategy practice at The PSC, leveraging her medical training, front-line clinical experience and expertise in leading complex service redesign to enable clinically-led strategic change.

Her passions for healthcare innovation and developing equitable healthcare systems in which services are designed around what users need drive her in supporting clients to navigate the challenges and opportunities that face them. As a leader, she creates environments in which her team is empowered, supporting them to learn new skills and grow. She brings a wealth of experience in business case development and strategic projects across clinical and academic spheres, and particularly enjoys bringing together multi-disciplinary teams and health and care systems.

Her work includes building the business case for a £600m hospital redevelopment, supported by an integrated programme of clinical and digital transformation to improve access and quality of care for 1.5 million people, and bringing together 24 health and care organisations to develop their maternity clinical strategy, integrating mental and physical health for mothers and babies across a region.

Her ability to forge deep, strategic relationships, collaborate with and engage stakeholders across disciplines and seniority levels and build consensus in politically sensitive environments has brought about project success. While supporting an NHS Trust to reconfigure their hospital sites, she managed to bring together parties to agree on a solution for clinical sustainability, despite six previous unsuccessful attempts from the Trust.
