NMC names new assistant director

  • Comment

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has appointed Cathy Cairns as its new assistant director for Scotland and Northern Ireland affairs.

She will take up the post in January. Ms Cairns was previously employed at the NMC as their professional adviser for children’s nursing and child health from 2006 to 2008.

She is currently working as an associate nurse director at NHS Fife.

NMC chief executive and registrar Dickon Weir-Hughes said: “Her new role represents a significant shift for the NMC, illustrating our commitment to moving away from what has been perceived as a London-focused model to one which is more inclusive of the devolved countries.”
