Personal statement

David-Atkinson Optimised.jpg

I am ex-army, ex-paramedic and am now a Registered Nurse and university lecturer with expertise in healthcare law and ethics. I believe this professional background, coupled with my life experience will be invaluable when acting as a trustee, as this will enable me to contribute to any decision making that will result in CIMSPA acting in the best interests of its members and the UK public.

Personal vision

I believe that CIMSPA should be the 'go-to' organisation for all fitness professionals and organisations, and act in an advisory capacity for all healthcare organisations, and companies involved in health and fitness. The board of trustees should aid the institute in achieving these goals by implementing best practice and supporting constant ethical research, so that its members and the public at large are given all the support needed to make informed choices about health and fitness.
