Leader of national nurses union to visit Benenden Hospital

9th November 2012

Dr Peter Carter, Chief Executive & General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) will meet with front line nursing staff when he visits Benenden Hospital next week. (Tuesday 13th November).

As part of his visit, Dr Carter will host an open session at the Hospital in Cranbrook where he will discuss, with nurses, modern challenges in the healthcare system and answer questions from staff.

Dee Farris, Modern Matron at Benenden Hospital, will introduce Dr Carter to the nursing teams as part of a tour of the Hospital wards and facilities. Dr Carter is keen to engage with staff outside of the NHS and to see for himself the high standards provided at Benenden Hospital. Dee said:

‘This is a great opportunity for nursing staff to meet with Dr Carter and we’re expecting a good number of staff to be on hand to meet him.   The healthcare sector is going through such a period of change I’m sure staff will want to seek and question Dr Carter’s views.’

Paul Keenan, External Affairs Manager, at Benenden Healthcare Society said: ‘We are delighted to be welcoming Dr Carter to the Hospital as part of his extremely busy schedule meeting nursing staff up and down the country. It is a great opportunity for him to see meet nursing staff in the private sector and to discuss their views as it goes through significant change.’

Dr Carter started his career by training as a psychiatric nurse and held a number of clinical & managerial posts before assuming his current position in 2007. The RCN has a membership of 400,000 nurses, midwives, health visitors, nursing students, cadets and healthcare assistants.
