  • Comment

Scotland has a new Chief Nursing Officer who is expected to take up her role at the beginning of 2010 - and she ‘can’t wait to get started’.

Ros Moore’s duties within the Scottish Government and to NHS Scotland will include responsibility for providing professional, policy and organisational advice across the country on nursing, midwifery and matters on public health nursing.

Ms Moore will also take a lead role on policy preventing HCAI, professional regulation and patient care.

Ms Moore said: “These are exciting and challenging times - and I can’t wait to get started. I am looking forward to working with nurses, midwives and the health professions to improve the health and well-being of the people of Scotland.

“Building on the achievements of my predecessor Paul Martin, I will continue to focus on improving health, driving quality care and empowering the workforce.”

Kevin Woods, director general for health and chief executive of NHS Scotland, said: “I am delighted that Ros Moore will be joining us as Chief Nursing Officer. She brings a wealth of experience and a track record of achievement.”

Since March 2009, Ms Moore has been the Director of Nursing at NHS Connecting for Health.
