About the Summit

Message from Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer for England.

This will be my first CNO Summit as Chief Nursing Officer and I’m honoured to have been appointed to the role, starting officially in the new year. I’ll be taking on this role from Professor Jane Cummings, who has worked tirelessly for nearly seven years on behalf of the nursing, midwifery and care professions.


The Summit is a real highlight and a fantastic way for all of us in the leadership community to meet, to share and to learn from each other. The 2019 Summit will provide a perfectly timed opportunity for us to consider together how we can maximise the contribution of nurses, midwives and care staff to enable delivery of the Long Term Plan; each and every one of us will have an important part to play.

Register here for the 2019 CNO Summit, which will be held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on the 13 and 14 March 2019.
