Professor on list of inspiring women
Professor Laura Serrant was among Health Service Journal’s (HSJ) annual Inspirational Women, and attended a private reception to network and celebrate their success.
The list, which launched last year, celebrates those women in healthcare who are driving transformational change within the NHS, both in clinical and non-clinical settings who stand out for their passion and ability to innovate and drive change.
Professor Serrant is Professor of Community and Public Health Nursing. She has worked with Government departments and regional, national and international groups to recognise the importance of Nurses working in the community and has been awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse.
She said: “I am delighted to have been included on the list. I am passionate about what I do and honoured to achieve this recognition.”
Nominees were asked to meet one of more of the following criteria:
- Delivering outstanding leadership
- Sharing knowledge and expertise with others in the sector
- Acting as a role model/mentor to colleagues · Driving innovation in service redesign and/or research
- At the heart of shaping or influencing policy
A panel of judges, who represented a broad spectrum of opinion, were asked review the long list and add suggestions of their own.
Fifty individuals from all areas of healthcare made the 2014 list and a special reception was hosted last week by Alastir McLellan, Editor of HSJ.
