The deadline is approaching for applications from senior nurses who would like to advise Englands chief nursing officer (CNO) on race equality and inclusion.

The position requires about a day a month and is suitable for those at director of nursing level or similar who have a record of achieving improvements in diversity and inclusion.

The chair will lead a new executive committee that has regional input.

CNO Jane Cummings said: This is an exciting opportunity for a nurse leader who is committed to ensuring we continue to develop and build a workforce that represents the communities we provide care for at every level.
