Don’t pigeonhole yourself
Nursing has provided a rich and varied career for deputy chief operating officer Vicky Stevens
After qualifying as a registered general nurse in 1988, Vicky Stevens held clinical roles in London at St Thomas’ Hospital, Lambeth Community NHS Trust and at a general practice in Stockwell. She joined Kent and Medway in 1997 as a ward sister and in 2014 was appointed service development lead for older people’s services. She is deputy chief operating officer and director of the older adults care group at Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust, a role she has held since April.
