This matron’s handbook highlights, reinforces and celebrates the critical role matrons play in health and care services across England.

The handbook should be used to prepare staff as leaders for the matron’s role and to support newly appointed matrons.

Experienced matrons should use it to confirm their skills and support their development further.




This matron’s handbook was co-designed with matrons nationally and #teamCNO
