Meet Dr Nick Athey- UKIM Chief Medical Officer


Get to Know our New CMO

We’re delighted to welcome Dr Nick Athey as our new Chief Medical Officer (CMO) here at UKIM.

Where Did It All Begin?

So, I’ve been a doctor for 25 years and I’m a specialist in Emergency Medicine. I trained at Newcastle University and worked all over the North East before taking up a consultant post in Middlesbrough at The James Cook University Hospital in 2009.

I’ve been a medicolegal expert for about 15 years and find using my clinical knowledge to help claimants navigate the legal process very rewarding.

A New Start At UKIM…

I am very excited to have joined UKIM and to be working within the expert liaison team. I will be looking at internal processes and governance matters, as well as reviewing challenging cases and resolving any clinical issues that may crop up. I’ll be onsite once a week and am really looking forward to the challenge and making a difference.

Fun Facts:

In my spare time I keep bees and enjoy eating their honey on my porridge every morning. I’m also a keen cyclist and enjoy taking my bike on holiday to places like Italy, France and Spain.
