CNO role could be removed

9th November 2010

Nurses have called for the government not to scrap or change the chief nursing officer position after Dame Christine Beasley retires next year.

University College London Hospitals Foundation Trust’s outgoing nurse director Louise Boden said: "Nursing is too important to the economy, and too embedded in the British psyche and consciousness, to be left to individual hospitals."

Ms Boden said if the postion was scrapped it would put increased pressure on individual nursing directors, because "nursing directors would be accountable in a way that at the moment partly goes through the DH".
