Cardiothoracic Surgical Registrar

Sweet as cupcakes but with a rod of steel running through her, this twenty first century woman strives for nothing less than perfection in every facet of her life- Sahira is a loyal wife, a loving mother and a brilliant surgeon with a rare gift for surgery. Yet underneath the surface she is paddling furiously to keep her head above water. Kind, honest and classy, the working mum has come to Holby as the protégé of Hanssen. But conscious of relying on his favour, ambitious Sahira wants to forge her independence and carve a career on her own merit.
