Ruth May is the Chief Nursing Officer for England, a post she has held since December 2018. She is also a board member of NHSE/Iand is the National Director for Infection Prevention & Control. She has been a nurse for her entire career and campaigns for mental health awareness, race equality & diversity. She is also a strong advocate for volunteer activity to support the nursing front line.
Perhaps her biggest single challenge will be workforce – fundamentally the fact that current projections point worryingly to an inability to deliver the long term plan and the fact that nursing numbers underpin everything.
What are her thoughts on this? What battles is she prepared to fight? What are her priorities in her role? How will she unite nurses in planning for the future? Does she have a trick up her sleeve?
This will be an important and packed HealthChat and you need to book now for what is certain to be a sold out event.
