Faculty of Clinical Informatics appoints first member of staff

The Faculty of Clinical Informatics (FCI) has appointed Kevin Hunt as its Business Manager.

The Faculty recently announced the names of those appointed to the Founding Fellowship. A further important step in the establishment of this new professional body has been made with the appointment of its first member of staff, Kevin Hunt. Kevin comes from a strong background in business and service development in health, education and research, within both the NHS and charity sectors. Most recently, Kevin was Chief Executive of the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre, overseeing the strategic direction of the organisation – leading a programme of efficiency savings and stakeholder engagement that supported the extension of services throughout the UK. He has also held senior positions at the British Orthopaedic Association, the National Clinical Assessment Service and within acute and community NHS Trusts. Kevin starts work on 13 November 2017.

As Business Manager, Kevin will support the Faculty form as an independent entity. A priority will be to work with the Founding Fellows and Shadow Board to design and develop services for members.

Professor Maureen Baker, Chair of the Shadow Board said: “I am delighted to welcome Kevin as the first member of staff of the new Faculty. He brings a wealth of experience and engaging enthusiasm. This important appointment is yet another milestone in the establishment of the professional body for clinical informaticians”.
