We’re delighted to announce that Ruth Oshikanlu, a Fellow of the Institute of Health Visiting (iHV), has been named in the Health Service Journal (HSJ) BME Pioneers List 2014.
The HSJ list recognises fifty individuals from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds who are making outstanding contributions to healthcare. People who, through exceptional leadership abilities or their day to day example, are inspiring others and helping to shape and deliver excellent care for all.
Cheryll Adams, director of the Institute of Health Visiting, said: “The iHV is delighted that one of their new Fellows has made this important list. Ruth is a health visitor entrepreneur, as has been recognised by this award.”
It’s been a quite a year of awards for Ruth. In addition to becoming a Fellow of the iHV, she has also been awarded the Queen’s Nursing Institute’s Queen Elizabeth and The Queen Mother Award for Outstanding Service to Community Nursing, The Community Practitioner of the Year Award and now an HSJ BME Pioneer! Well done Ruth!
