Kim Pauling

Nominated for The Debbie Eadie Award for Advance Nurse Practice Award

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

“Kim is a delight to work alongside, her work as an ANP stands out. You can tell she has a fulfilment within her job role from her positive attitudes. She effectively builds a good teamwork approach between the nursing staff and medical staff. She has excellent communicational skills between patients, parents, families and health and social care professionals.

Having worked with Kim for several years on and off I am continually impressed by her intelligence, drive, and clinical acumen. She has helped carve a role for APNPs within her department and is now completely invaluable to the medical team as a whole.

Kim has been exceptional in her ability to work closely with both the nursing teams and medical teams. She has provided excellent support for the junior doctors and trainee APNP on the unit. She works well with families and is able to make competent and sensible assessments and management plans. She has taken on the job of producing patient advice leaflets for a wide variety of conditions.

Kim is a great asset to have on the team, she is a great team player! Her interaction with children and their families is outstanding. When patient numbers rise, Kim goes out of her way to help out and support by assessing patients. It is a pleasure to work alongside Kim! Always keen to support the medical and nursing team, to take on new projects and complete them.”
