Kym is our Nurse Manager and joined the practice in 2020. She has worked in healthcare for over 16 years, starting as a volunteer for St. Barnabas Hospice, then progressing to a Healthcare Assistant in the hospital and in general practice until starting her nurse training in 2014. Although her career has mainly focused on practice nursing, Kym returned to support urgent care and A&E during Covid and spent 6 months working within the Clinical Assessment Service (who run alongside 111 and perform all their clinical assessments).
She has a specialist interest in gynaecology, and is now a named cervical screening teacher to other Nurses. She also has a passion for diabetes following her own personal history with the condition, and works exceptionally hard improving diabetes outcomes for her patients. This dedication earned her a top 5 place in Nurse of the Year 2021.
Outside of work Kym enjoys being in her garden, and has even made national news with her cake making skills!
