Nicola Collings, 23, on holiday in Egypt. A young woman who was left fighting for her life and needing two months off work after she suffered severe kidney problems following a summer break to Egypt is taking legal action as she recovers from her illness. See NTI story NTIKIDNEY. Nicola Collings, 23, travelled to the all-inclusive Siva Sharm Resort & Spa in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, in August 2014 with travel company Red Sea Holidays UK Limited but became ill with gastric symptoms on the day she landed at home and just two days later she was fighting for her life. Nicola, from Birmingham, who was forced to have two months off work and is still feeling the effects now, has instructed specialist international personal injury lawyers to investigate the cause of her illness. The law firm is also representing other holidaymakers who also travelled to the resort in the summer of 2014 who also fell ill.
