We've appointed Angela Thompson to the role of Director of Nursing and Deputy Regional Chief Nurse for our London region.

Reporting into London’s Regional Chief Nurse, Professor Oliver Shanley OBE, the new role adds to the expert professional leadership for nursing across the capital.

With more than 30 years experience in NHS and clinical leadership roles, Angela brings a wealth of experience to this new post, and I am delighted to welcome her to NHS Improvement on a substantive basis.

I’ve been made very welcome while on secondment to NHS Improvement, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with providers and teams for patients across the capital.
