Professor Trish Morris-Thompson, Director of Quality and Clinical Governance at Barchester Healthcare, says it’s “an honour” to have been appointed nursing advisor by Care England.
Care England has appointed two honorary nursing advisors, Trish Morris-Thompson and Deborah Sturdy, as part of its strategy to tackle the shortage of nurses in the sector.
Morris-Thompson is one of the most senior nurses in the industry, having worked in high-ranking roles within both the NHS and the private sector. Before joining Barchester Healthcare, Morris-Thompson was Chief Nurse at NHS London and visiting professor of nursing and midwifery at Buckinghamshire New University.
Her latest appointment as an honorary nursing advisor reflects her experience and expertise, as well as her far-reaching influence across different areas of healthcare, which she maintains through her roles as a Trustee of the Florence Nightingale Foundation, and Clinical Fellow of the Royal College of Nursing.
Professor Trish Morris-Thompson said: “It is an honour to be appointed nursing advisor for the largest organisation representing independent care services in England. I look forward to working more closely with Care England in this new role to address key issues in the industry, such as the shortage of nurses, and to strive for solutions for the benefit of the sector and the individuals working within it.”
