Chief nursing officer honoured with academic award

  • Comment
Christine Beasley, the chief nursing officer for England, has been awarded an honorary doctorate in recognition of her service to the NHS by Sheffield Hallam University.

Dame Christine has been the government’s most senior nursing adviser since 2004. She was awarded a CBE in 2002 and a DBE in June 2008 for her commitment to nursing.

‘I’m absolutely delighted to receive this degree from Sheffield Hallam,’ she said. ‘Not just for me personally, but for all of the nurse and midwives who I represent working now in Sheffield and across the country. This recognizes the contributions they make and I'm delighted on their behalf.’

Her award was conferred this month at a ceremony alongside graduates from Sheffield Hallam’s Faculty of Health and Well Being.

Trevor Phillips, chairperson of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, also received an honorary doctorate.
