Kim Pauling

Works at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

Clinical excellence is a hallmark of Kim’s practice. She delivers care to CYP diligently and with high acumen. She actively seeks out opportunities to develop her skills and knowledge and is loved by her patients and families in her care. She is a hugely valuable member of the team, and seamlessly bridges the, sometimes seemingly insurmountable, gap between medical and nursing teams.

Above all, her drive for self-improvement is truly impressive. She leaps at opportunities to develop her skills, those of her team and the wider department. This is evident through the number of innovations and improvement initiatives that she can claim responsibility for. The department in Derriford is a much better place because of her inspiring hard work.

Kim is a joy to be around and brings the different teams across Level 12 together. She unites Paediatrics as a whole and CAU would be a loss without her. Kim has an abundance of enthusiasm, clever and dedicated.
