We are pleased to announce our fourth invited guest and award presenter :
Professor Jane Cummings CBE is a former Chief Nursing Officer for England. Jane developed and published the 6C's of Nursing - a set of core values and expectations of registered nurses in the UK. She was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2019 for services to Nursing and the NHS.
Jane Chairs the RCN Foundation Board and had a key role in the setting up of a subsidiary charity Covid-19 Healthcare Support Appeal (CHSA), created in 2020 thanks to a £5 million donation from TikTok to provide grants to healthcare workers most affected by COVID-19, directly supporting over 10,800 people. Overall, CHSA's approach effectively delivered funding to reach beneficiaries through quick decision-making, proactive partner search, risk-taking with emerging organizations, clear criteria, a simplified application process, and forums for collaboration. You can read the full report here.
Jane is a longtime supporter of the FabAwards and we are thrilled that she will be with us again this year - it just wouldn't be the same without her.
