Eileen Shepherd

Clinical editor Eileen Shepherd brings to Nursing Times her extensive experience of being a nurse in the NHS in a variety of specialties and roles. Eileen trained at Charing Cross Hospital in London, completing a four-year diploma in nursing. She worked as a staff nurse in cardiothoracic nursing and was rapidly promoted to ward sister in general surgery. Since then she has worked in a variety of senior clinical roles and has also worked as a bank and agency nurse during her career.

Using her nursing and clinical experience, Eileen was invited to work as a consultant on two major national projects with the Audit Commission, one on nursing itself, the other on the care of the older person.

Eileen has worked as a freelance writer and editor for 20 years, using her invaluable nursing knowledge to communicate with a specialist audience. She joined the Nursing Times team in 2003 as supplements editor and is now clinical editor, responsible for planning and commissioning the clinical content. As well as using her own knowledge and experience, she works closely with a team of clinical advisers and with professional organisations to ensure that the clinical content is what nurses need, topical and up-to-date.
