After 42 years working in the NHS in a variety of roles, Kim has taken the step to become self-employed and is now working with FEDIP as a Programme Manager. Kim’s expertise is in records management and data quality and until recently held a senior manager position in an acute Trust for the last 16 years.
She also worked in the IT department as a Senior Project Manager, helping implement software to underpin the delivery of patient care. In 2002 Kim was seconded to work for the Department of Health for 12 months, leading the implementation of Copying Letters to Patients in the Southwest.
Kim has been a member of the Institute of Health Records and Information Management (IHRIM) for over 30 years and is a Fellow of the Institute. She has been on the Board in various roles and until recently served 13 years as Chairman which resulted in being awarded the Royle Mansell Award, the highest accolade the Institute can present to a member, for outstanding and sustained contribution to the work of the Institute over and above what would usually be expected of a member. Her role on the Board now is Director without Portfolio, to allow her to take on the role with FEDIP.
