Professor June Andrews named as one of the most influential figures in nursing

Professor June Andrews, the Director of the Dementia Services Development Centre, has been named in a “leaders’ list” produced by the Nursing Times magazine.

The magazine said the supplement celebrated “the contributions to nursing and healthcare of the profession’s most influential leaders”.

Jenni Middleton, the magazine’s editor, said: “We were looking for a set of nurses who have changed practice for the better, shown visionary thinking, had a major positive impact and role modelled exceptional behaviours for others to imitate.”

Professor Andrews, who grew up in Saltcoats, Ayrshire, is a former nurse, trade union leader, NHS manager and senior civil servant. 

In her current role she leads the University’s award-winning Dementia Centre which works with individuals and organisations to improve the lives of people with dementia.

In picking Professor Andrews, the judges from Nursing Times said: “June has done phenomenal work to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families.”

Professor Andrews said: “I have been very lucky in my career and always worked with great teams. Here at the University of Stirling we are part of a wider high performing team. It is really exciting to be recognised in this way.”
