The Institute of Health Visiting (iHV) is delighted to announce three new honorary Fellows.
Professor Rosamund Bryar, Dr Alain Gregoire and Wendy Taman all received their honorary Fellowships of the Institute of Health Visiting at the iHV’s sixth annual celebration event held in London last Tuesday (4 December 2018). The honorary Fellowships were awarded in recognition of their continued support of both the Institute and the health visiting profession, and mark the high esteem in which they are held by the Institute’s board.
Rosamund Bryar, one of the founding Trustees of the Institute, is Emeritus Professor of Community and Primary Care Nursing, City University London, and has been involved in service development, education, research and research capacity building in health visiting and primary health care since the mid-1980s. Ros was one of the “Gang of four” who set up the Institute.
Dr Alain Gregoire, a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist and chair of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance, has worked with the Institute on its Perinatal Mental Health Champions project and much more widely has campaigned around and supported the critical role of the health visitor in recognising and supporting mothers with perinatal mental illness.
Wendy Taman is a practising health visitor who uses technology to spread good health visiting practice – and who is supporting the Institute’s presence on Twitter.
iHV’s Executive Director, Dr Cheryll Adams CBE, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome these fantastic individuals to our pool of Honorary Fellows. All have had a significant impact on the art and science of health visiting.”
