Regulator appoints national nurse advisor

  • Comment
The Healthcare Commission has appointed a new national clinical advisor for nursing.

Professor Ann Close will be responsible for providing the commission with senior strategic advice on issues related to nursing and patient care.

She is currently nursing director and director of infection prevention at the Dudley Group of Hospitals NHS Trust in the West Midlands. She will continue in this role while acting as an advisor to the commission.

‘I hope to use the role to engage nurses in the importance of monitoring and assessing the care that they provide, as a means of bringing greater accountability to the work that they do,’ said professor Close.

She takes over from Dame Catherine Elcoat who left the commission last year.
