Nursing Times

January 2021


Open our January issue to find out more about Helen Bishton, the 2020 Nursing Times Florence Nightingale Nurse of the Year, who is featured on the cover. And in an exclusive interview ahead of her retirement, the chief nursing officer for Wales, Professor Jean White, issues a warning on the need to protect the workforce and avoid a future retention crisis. We also provide analysis of the pressure nurses are currently under and on the rollout of the vaccination programme, as our first issue of 2021 comes at a time when the country is sadly facing an unprecedented threat from Covid-19. In addition, have a look at our clinical section where we focus in detail on using pressurised metered-dose inhalers, a toolkit that uses patient feedback to improve care and how the body responds to allergens. Meanwhile, our opinion section features England’s new chief nursing officer for social care, Deborah Sturdy, Nursing Times student editor Thomas Williams and, in her regular column, Nursing and Midwifery Council chief executive and registrar Andrea Sutcliffe.
