Institute Associate Profile
Maimie became an Associate in 2020 with over 25 years of experience in leading the delivery of public consultation and major service change.

She worked for NHS Highland between 2003 and 2018 initially supporting National Collaborative Programmes before taking up post as Head of Public Relations and Engagement in 2011.
