  • working with the new code in terms of fitness to practise: what has changed?
  • assessment and investigations at a local level
  • ensuring the code is used in a positive way to improve practise

Kath Evan’s Biography:

As a registered general and children’s nurse I am currently Head of Patient Experience for Maternity, Newborn, Children and Young People at NHS England. Key areas of my work include ensuring the NHS has mechanisms to capture and use insight from Children, Young People, families/carers and maternity service users so that all are active collaborators in care and have every opportunity to co-create and transform services to meet needs, improve experiences and improve outcomes.

In 2008 I joined the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement where I led the National Children’s and Young People’s Emergency and Urgent Care programme, directly supporting health care systems to collaborate to ensure effective use of services.

Prior to that my background includes operating as an Assistant Director of Nursing at the Whittington NHS Trust and working as Lead Nurse in East and North Hertfordshire, managing acute and community children’s services, taking a key role in reconfiguration. I have also established educational programmes in London across five Trusts to support and retain newly qualified nurses and have worked as a Senior Lecturer at Middlesex University. My clinical practice has included posts in general paediatrics in Cardiff and at the Whittington and specialist paediatric practice at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

I was delighted to be identified as a HSJ Inspirational Women Leader (2014), a Nursing Leader by the Nursing Times (2014), a ‘Rising Star’ by the HSJ (2013), an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Improving Patient Experience’ award (2013) by the Patient Experience Network and an NHS Innovator of the Year (2012) finalist by the NHS Leadership academy.
