  • 4 Comments

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust chief nurse Dame Eileen Sills has been appointed as a senior professional advisor to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The position is one of two roles that have been newly created to provide “high-level professional advice” to the NMC.

Dame Eileen will hold the position of senior nursing advisor, while the senior midwifery advisor will be announced at the regulator’s next council meeting in October.

The posts have been appointed for 12 months, on a part-time basis.

NMC chief executive and registrar Jackie Smith said: “I am delighted to welcome Dame Eileen to the NMC. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise from her role leading nursing and midwifery services at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.

“We are committed to improving how we protect the public through modern and effective regulation,” she said. “We recognise that nurses and midwives have an important role in shaping how we deliver public protection.

“Eileen’s experience will be a valuable resource and add a contemporary nursing perspective to our work,” she added.

Commenting on her advisory role with the regulator, Dame Eileen said: “I am delighted that I have been offered this opportunity and I look forward to working with Jackie Smith and other colleagues at the NMC over the next year.”
