‘I value the structured and practical training I received’
Kim Badcock, 2018’s QNI Queen Mother Award for Outstanding Service winner, shares her experience of 41 years in the NHS
What is your job?
I have just retired from my role as nurse practitioner after 41 years in the NHS. Now, as a dementia adviser, I work with the NHS, voluntary agencies and the community. We aim to maximise the annual dementia review by creating a robust care plan and having voluntary agencies on site to provide additional information and support.
