NELFT staff members recognised as inspirational women leaders as part of NHS70 celebrations

We are delighted to announce four of our staff have been recognised as inspirational women leaders across the NHS in London. As part of the NHS70 celebrations the NHS London Leadership Academy requested nominations for staff from London NHS organisations. Over 150 nominations were received and 70 women leaders were chosen following judging panels.

The staff from NELFT who were recognised are:

Laura Stuart Neil, lead for Allied Health Professions and lead for Quality Improvement. Laura’s nomination stated that she is constantly compassionate in all her interactions she has with staff, patients and partners, even in difficult and problematic situations.
