The Blog of

After a busy week, I can at last catch up with the blog!

On Thursday I attended and spoke at a leadership conference at the RCN (Royal College of Nursing).

It was a great day to do this as the Department of Health announced on Thursday morning, that the Director of Nursing will be a member of the NHS Commissioning board.

At the Health select Committee a number of weeks earlier, I asked the RCN Chief Executive, Peter Carter, would he like to see this happen? His answer was a very strong yes.

Unfortunately, the counter argument is where does the DoH draw the line? Physiotherapists, Pharmacists, Optometrists etc all believe they should have a place too.

I am sure their cases are worthy; however, none can be as worthy of that of the nurse and the final decision to say yes to a nurse representative on the NHS commissioning board was absolutely the right one.

I hopefully have the comment section on Conservative Home in the morning, so, back to work!
