The contribution of women in the NHS is celebrated by the network.
77 per cent of the NHS workforce are women however just 46 per cent of very senior manager roles in the NHS are held by women - see NHS Employer's Gender in the NHS infographic for more information.
NHS Employer's report NHS Women on Boards: 50:50 by 2020 written by Professor Ruth Sealy of the University of Exeter Business School, examines the steps the NHS needs to take to reach the target of equal gender representation on boards by 2020.
In order to be gender balanced, NHS boards in England need another 500 women to sit on boards across trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups and arm’s length bodies .
Our network supports women in the NHS and across the health sector with their professional development, and empowers women to secure senior and board level positions.
