Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, Andrea Sutcliffe, scooped special recognition at an event celebrating the most inspirational women from all areas of healthcare.
The Health Service Journal (HSJ) announced its 2014 Inspirational Women list at No 11 Cavendish Square, London where Andrea joined around 110 inspirational women and guests at a private reception to network and celebrate their success.
This year’s HSJ Inspirational Women list celebrates the top 50 individuals who stand out for their passion and ability to innovate and drive forward transformational change.
The HSJ judging panel commented: “Andrea is inspirational not just in what she does, but in how she does it. She’s confident without being arrogant, ambitious for her work not herself, and always focused on the good she can do for others.”
Andrea said: “I feel honoured to be included in the HSJ Inspirational Women list and would like to thank the judges and anyone who took the time to nominate me. I am also humbled by the company I am keeping – there are some fantastic women on this list who are making a huge difference in the health and care world. Alison Cameron, Gill Phillips and Dr Kate Granger have all used their personal experiences and understanding of services to lead the way in improving care. They are truly inspirational.”
