  • A Fond Farewell

    On 19th July at the Phi Mu All England Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (Sigma) Annual Conference held at Oxford Brookes University we said a heartfelt and fond farewell to Dr Janet Scammell as she stepped down from her role as President and welcomed our new President Dr Liz Westcott. 

    Janet has played a significant role in helping to drive forward the current work being undertaken by the Chapter, in particular the setting up of Regional Hubs and the Hosting of the European Conference in Cambridge both of which have helped Phi Mu grow in reputation in both England and Europe

    Janet is not leaving the Chapter, instead her main focus will be to continue in her role as Board member and Southern and International Regional Hub Lead, where she will continue to support the work of Phi Mu and Sigma as a whole.

    We would also like to say thank you to Janet who has supported many staff as a mentor and helped them to develop their roles within Phi Mu. Each new challenge has brought its rewards. Working with Janet has been an absolute privilege and also working with such a dedicated group of nurses who are committed to ensuring the delivery of safe and effective care globally, is something we are all particularly proud to be involved with. 

  • June 2019: President’s monthly briefing for members

    Dear Members

    Here is my last monthly update of Chapter news as Chapter President:

    Chapter Annual Conference and new member induction: 19th July 2019

    This event hosted by Oxford Brookes University is a great opportunity to network with Chapter members and listen to a stimulating programme of presentations including keynote papers from Professor Anne-Marie Rafferty, Baroness Watkins and Heather Henry as well as concurrent session papers from student and academic members from each of the regional hubs.  This is a FREE event for Sigma members, although non-members can attend for a small fee.  Any questions, please email Dr Liz Westcott westcottej@brookes.ac.uk

    Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Chapter induction

    The AGM is being held at the end of the conference day at 3.30pm.  If you are in Oxford please stay to hear of chapter achievements and future plans.  This is followed by a short induction ceremony when we formally welcome new members of the Chapter.  Your support to make this occasion really special will be appreciated. 

    Research, practice development and education awards

    Thank-you for your applications for these new awards.  They were judged by members of the Chapter research committee and two awards were made to

    • Catherine Best
    • Dr Amy Hunter

    Many congratulations Catherine and Amy!  I look forward to presenting your awards at the annual conference in Oxford. 

    Further call: Vacancy  on European committee

    This was advertised last month but I received no nominations.  A vacancy has arisen to represent our Chapter on the European Awards and Recognition committee.  There are approximately 4 meetings a year all held via video-link and the commitment is not onerous but provides a good opportunity to network with Sigma members across Europe. Please get in touch to put yourself forward: jscammell@bournemouth.ac.uk    

    And it’s goodbye from me…

    I have served as Chapter President since January 2017 and my term expires on 19th July 2019.  It has been a privilege to serve the Chapter in this capacity.  I have got to know so many members both in our Chapter and in the Sigma organisation more widely and thereby enriched my appreciation of the scope of nursing at many levels and in many settings.  I will continue to be a member of the Chapter Board in my capacity as Southern and international regional hub lead.  I know I am leaving the Chapter in very capable hands: Dr Liz Westcott is a highly experienced nurse leader who has served the chapter as vice-president and President-elect.  I know she will pro-actively and creatively take the Chapter forwards into its next phase of development.

    Best wishes

    Dr Janet Scammell, Chapter President
