Kim is Partnership Manager for Yeovil Hospital, taking responsibility for the masterplan and partnership plan.

In this role, Kim provides a valuable link between strategic and project boards, ensuring SEP activity is co-ordinated with other capital works projects and remains relevant to the Trust’s evolving business and clinical needs.

Kim also delivers commercial support to Prime clients, producing business cases and strategic plans to help them maximise commercial opportunities. In addition she helps to secure new clients for Prime and is very often involved in business development activities, particularly during the bidding process.

I work directly with Trust teams to co-ordinate strategic estates partnership projects to ensure activity links across all other workstreams to deliver change and transformation at pace for the Trust.
