First director of nursing for public health announced

Professor Viv Bennett has been appointed as director of nursing in the Department of Health and the government’s principal adviser on public health nursing. Viv was previously the deputy chief nursing officer.

This new post will complement the role of chief nursing officer in the NHS Commissioning Board, which will be recruited in the new year. Together these posts will enhance the role of nursing leadership and replace the current role of chief nursing officer (CNO) in the Department of Health.
