Professor Ursula Gallagher, Education for Health Trustee, has been awarded the prestigious title of Fellow of The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).
QNI Fellows provide professional advice, and intelligence from the field, on practice, research, education, policy and health service issues.

Ursula is a highly respected senior leader in nursing and in particular primary care. She is the Nurse Lead at the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which she joined in 2015 as a Deputy Chief Inspector of Primary Care. She leads on the inspection of primary care services throughout London.

Ursula has led on high profile national work, including the Department of Health’s response to the Munro Review on child safeguarding, and recently with NHS England to plan and deliver clinical leadership development in the NHS.

She said: “It is very humbling to be made a Fellow of the organisation for community district nurses and those providing out of hospital care.

“I have worked for the last 30 years to enhance the profession and extend the role of nurses during this time and therefore to receive this recognition from the QNI is gratifying.

“This is complementary with the work I do with Education for Health which is also about providing care to patients and particularly with those nurses that care for people closer to home.”
