I took up the role of Regional Director on 24 February 2020.
Having worked in nursing for over 20 years, I’m delighted to have joined the region. I have worked across different settings in the capital, both in primary and secondary care, in NHS and non-NHS roles, and look forward to bringing this range of experience to my role.
Nursing in London is unique. I believe nursing staff are integral to the city and should feel valued and empowered to deliver the best care to patients.
We have the most diverse nursing workforce in the country, and this is something to be celebrated and something that really attracts nursing students and staff to the capital.
I know there is a lot of work to do, particularly around making sure our profession is truly inclusive for all nursing staff and our patients.
My passion is patient safety, and this is something I have put at the heart of all my nursing roles so far. I’m relishing the opportunity to help drive our safe staffing campaign in London, and support members to lead from the front.
I look forward to getting out and meeting you and hearing about the issues that are important to you.
