The newly appointed Director in charge of Nursing and Midwifery at Wirral University Teaching Hospital has begun to set out her vision for the future of nursing at the Trust.

Marking International Nurses Day on the 12th May, Jill Galvani used the annual event in the nursing calendar to introduce the return of the much valued and respected Ward Sister title to staff. Jill said:

“We can confirm that the Ward Manager name is no more.

“Patients, carers and visitors to our hospitals need to know who is in charge of our wards and as such the Ward Sister title has been introduced.

“This is a return to what is seen as a very traditional name in the NHS and something the public recognises as having overall authority.”

Ward Sisters, or Charge Nurses if male, wear distinctive and smart navy blue uniforms with a red trim at Wirral Hospitals.
