England's CNO named among top 100 'best connected' women

  • Comment

Jane Cummings, chief nursing officer for England, has been named on a powerlist of the UK’s most connected women.

The 100 Most Connected Women 2014 list was co-compiled by the GQ magazine and knowledge-networking business Editorial Intelligence.

GQ described Ms Cummings, 53, as a “modern and hyper-connected champion of nursing”.

“She made great inroads in restoring public confidence in nursing after the mid-Staffordshire crisis and is involved in the £100m Nursing Technology Fund to refocus the NHS on patient-led care,” it added.

GQ said it believed the initiative was the “first comprehensive list of the strategically aligned, socially embedded and beyond-the-call-of-duty, public-spirited women who currently define the age of interdependence”.

It also included other well-known, well-connected women such as home secretary Theresa May, the model Cara Delevingne, journalist Rebekah Brooks and Her Majesty the Queen.

Commenting on the CNO’s position in the list during a recent community nursing conference, NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens said: “Jane is a fantastic advocate and leader for the profession, as chief nursing officer for England and also as executive director in NHS England.”
