Four senior nurses have been named as 'Women of the Year' to celebrate their achievements in the field of health and medicine.

They joined colleagues in other professions including politics, the arts, business, journalism and agriculture at a prestigious London lunch yesterday (15 October).

The four are Ros Alstead, director of nursing, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Trust; Louise Ashley, director of nursing, Barnet & Chase Farm Hospital Trust; Louise Boden, chief nurse, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; and Shona Brown, director of nursing at Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust.

Women of the Year council president and singer Joan Armatrading said: 'The lunch recognises achievements of women across a wide range of industries. These women sometimes overlook their enormous value.'
