Sally Shearer OBE

Health Member

National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel

Sally is a Registered Nurse (Child) and after a 42 year NHS career, now represents health on the National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel. The Panel was established in 2017 to have a national oversight of serious safeguarding incidents in England, sharing the learning across agencies to improve practice.

Prior to taking up this role in July 2022, Sally spent seven years as Chief Nurse and Deputy CEO of Sheffield Children’s and two and a half years as Director of Nursing for children and young people at Barts Health. Both roles included executive accountability for 0-19 services, experience that has strengthened her resolve to influence the broader determinants of children’s health. Sally also volunteers at a mums and tots group, keeping her grounded in the joy and challenge of parenting.

Sally previously held positions as Visiting Professor at Sheffield Hallam University and Chair of the ACCN 2019-2022. She is a member of the iHV.

Sally was awarded an OBE in October 2020 for her services to nursing.
