News roundup

Published: 1 November 2013

A summary of the latest news and intelligence from around the Faculty.


Health Sciences has been identified as an exemplar of best practice in the Clwyd Report which reviews how patients' complaints are handled by the NHS.  We are ‘Case study five: Training the NHS staff of the future' which begins on page 49 of the report. We also hope to appear in an article by the Nursing Standard this week.


The Health Sciences blog is now live! gets straight to the point, putting you in the picture in just a click. Our regular bloggers include the Faculty's Dean, Jessica Corner, undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

Current blog posts include Jessica's thoughts on all-degree nursing, part one of UG nursing student Katy Elliot's experience in Malawi, Healthcare Science student Susannah Malone explains what her choice of degree is all about and international PG student, Saima Lakhani, blogs about her first experiences of travelling here from Pakistan.


It's been another bumper week for Health Sciences media coverage.  The Nursing Times has covered our 30th anniversary of nursing celebrations and ITV Meridian's coverage of our SAIL project led by Ann-Marie Hughes was aired on Monday. If you missed it you can watch it again here

In addition Professors Alan Glasper and Mandy Fader have written a simple guide to the Research Excellence Framework in the British Journal of Nursing.


Dr Lesley Collier has been invited to be a judge on the 15th National Care Awards organised by Caring Times which aims to highlight the work done by individuals on a day-to-day basis, providing quality care.  The 2013 Awards are to be held at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel on the 29th November 2013.  #NationalCareAwards


Congratulations to Jo Watson and her teams on a fine performance at the Modernising Scientific Careers Proportionate Touch Review on behalf of Health Education England and the accreditation event with the Registering Council for Clinical Physiologists. The outcomes from both events were very positive.

An enormous contribution was made by Deborah Guy to the success of this event, as explicitly highlighted by the RCCP accreditation team, our own HCS team and our Audiology colleagues.


And finally...if you've not yet come across this website from the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, Mary Gobbi has highlighted it an incredibly useful resource.
