Kim McAssey

I have worked full time both within the Primary Care Sector & Secondary Care for 21 years, currently based at the Rectory Road site undertaking a variety of health care roles.

Previously I worked in the Dermatology Department at Chesterfield Hospital for 10 years before moving to RPC for a new challenge.

My role as a dedicated HCA is to provide the best possible care for patients and enhance the RPC Clinical Team, regularly updating knowledge & skills in a rewarding profession.

I started working at the surgery as a receptionist in 2000 back when the surgery was known as Avondale. 3 years later I undertook an NVQ level 2 and 3 in care and became a HCA for Avondale.
 
Since then I've done a lot more training to expand my knowledge as a HCA including; ear irrigation, annual reviews, spirometry's and many other things.
