Inspiring Change is the theme for International Women's Day 2014.

It calls for challenging the status quo for women's equality and vigilance inspiring positive change.

We are proud to be able to contribute to the celebrations with a  poster demonstrating women in the NHS workforce, and two articles published in the international women’s day supplement 2014. The supplement has been distributed through The Independent and Evening Standard newspapers, International Women’s Day events, universities and educational institutions.

Gill Bellord, director of employment relations and reward celebrates women's contributions to the NHS by asking "When you think about who makes decisions about the future of the NHS who do you think about? How about the people who provide your care? Who comes to mind – are they male or female? Read Gill'sarticle in full.
