Kim Rutter is a very experienced communicator and has worked in digital marketing, PR, journalism and stakeholder engagement. She has a strong interest in existing and developing digital technologies and a thorough knowledge of how they can be used to improve organisational efficiency and reduce operational costs
She also has an extensive knowledge of the social care sector, which she developed at the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) where she worked for 16 years. Kim took on a number of roles at SCIE, starting out in the communications team and then going on to develop skills in guideline implementation and practice improvement when she moved into the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Collaborating Centre for Social Care, which was hosted by SCIE. One of the focuses of this work was dementia care. Kim gained experience of developing dementia training programmes and can offer training for level 2 and level 3 dementia qualifications. Alternatively, she can create a course tailor-made to your own requirements.
Kim worked closely with other care sector organisations, particularly the Care Quality Commission (CQC), to support services to adopt NICE evidence-based social care recommendations. Through this work, she gained an excellent understanding of how providers can improve standards and meet CQC requirements. Kim is passionate about person-centred care and brings this passion to all of her work with clients.
