The RCN has appointed Bronagh Scott, currently Executive Director of Nursing at the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board as interim Director of Nursing Policy and Practice.

Ms Scott will start the position on 3rd December for a six month tenure, while the RCN’s Director of Nursing Policy and Practice, Dame Donna Kinnair, serves as Acting Chief Executive and General Secretary.

‘We are delighted that Bronagh is joining the College on an interim basis. She brings a huge range of experience in nursing leadership positions, and we all look forward to welcoming her to the RCN,’ said Dame Kinnair.

Ms Scott first qualified as a nurse in Northern Ireland, and went on to specialise in intensive care nursing in Belfast and Perth, Western Australia. She has also held a number of senior management and Executive Director posts in Health and Social Services in Northern Ireland and London. Her most recent role was Deputy Chief Nurse for NHS England London Region.

In this post, she led on a number of national leadership programmes of work including the publication of Next Generation Leadership Development for senior nurses aspiring to Director posts specifically from Black and Minority Ethnic groups.

Additionally, she was Nurse Adviser on the international panel tasked with leading an informed debate on the best configuration of Health and Social Care services in Northern Ireland, as well as being a Trustee for United Response, a national charity for people with learning difficulties.‎
