Dr Julie Cullen and Liz Thiebe co-designed and delivered a one day event for regional primary care nurse leaders, ‘Clinical Commissioning and Primary Care in the New NHS', earlier this month.  This was the first collaboration between our University and the newly formed Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy (TWLA) and marked the beginning of the ‘New NHS' commissioning structure. 

NHS England Director of Nursing, Hilary Garratt, provided the plenary speech and inspiration to 39 nurse leaders from across the South of England who attended.


Congratulations to Bachelor of Nursing student Justina Forbes who has been awarded a first place 'Outstanding Academic Achievement Award' by LASER Learning Awards and Access to Higher Education.  This is a great achievement and a real success.
