QNIS is pleased to announce that Josie Murray, a Public Health Specialty Registrar, has joined the organisation in the role of Trustee.
Josie brings 17 years of nursing experience, having worked across the private, public and third sectors.
She is currently a fourth year Specialty Registrar in Public Health on the National Specialty Training programme – one of the first nurses in Scotland to perform this role.
She said: “I have been looking for about 12 months for a charity to be able to offer some of the skills I have in public health. I have worked in the third sector before and I was very aware of the excellent work being done.”
“I have been seeking an organisation that shares my values and which is fundamentally trying to reduce inequality in health and increase the wellbeing of the population.
“I am so happy to be joining QNIS. I think it’s such a privilege to serve in an organisation that’s so long established and respected. I am really excited about the work and I wholeheartedly support the QNIS vision to enable community nurses to be the best they can be to help the nation’s people be as well as they can be.”
The QNIS Council comprises up to fifteen Trustees who are officially appointed by our Patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Council, which meets quarterly, has a governance role for the charity that includes advising on strategic, financial, legal and operational issues.
Clare Cable, QNIS chief executive and nurse director, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Josie Murray who brings years of experience in working with a remit that includes promoting and protecting health and wellbeing while reducing health inequalities – values that are perfectly aligned to the vision of QNIS.”
