We are deeply saddened to report that Dr Clifford Mann OBE, the National Clinical Director for urgent and emergency care has passed away.
“Cliff was a phenomenal leader; never afraid to say what was needed but also a calm and measured presence, even under pressure. He had professional integrity, spoke with authority yet always with rationale. Cliff remembered your name – a rare but powerful gift. He made you and what you brought to emergency care important. He had the utmost respect for the nursing workforce – something that led him to be a true friend and ally to the Royal College of Nursing Emergency Care Association to strengthen our collective voice on improving quality care for patients and those who work within emergency care. Cliff still worked in the environment he loved and this meant he truly understood the issues that faced emergency care. His death is a sad loss for Emergency Care and he will be remembered both for his incredible work and his genuine warmth and friendship.”
