Rosslyn Crocket, Director of Nursing for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, has been honoured in the New Years Honours list with an MBE. Rosslyn, who leads the largest NHS nursing workforce in the UK, has personally spearheaded a campaign launched two years ago to put the pride back into nursing. With a nursing career spanning more than 30 years Rosslyn is one of Scotland most senior and respected nursing leads.
Rosslyn said: “I am absolutely thrilled to accept this honour both personally and on behalf of nursing throughout NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
“During my career the nursing profession has evolved at a rapid pace. Nurses are now performing roles and duties that were once only carried out by doctors. However despite these great strides forward in our profession it is my firm view that we must never lose sight of the core principles of nursing - compassion, dignity and respect. As such my focus over the past few years has been very much in putting the pride back into nursing and reinforcing these most fundamental of nursing values.”
