NHS Confederation associate director Karen Castille was accidentally omitted from HSJ’s list of the Most Inspirational Women in Healthcare, which was published this week.
Ms Castille joined the NHS Confederation last year from Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust, where she impressed in her roles as chief nurse, director of organisational development and later as interim chief executive.
In her new role she has worked on the response to the Francis public inquiry report, as well as board leadership, culture and values, and supporting women in senior roles.
The Inspirational Women judges said of her: “Karen’s deep understanding of what it takes to change organisations and culture is always in evidence. She understands the importance of gender issues and her work to improvethe profile and development of senior women leaders is notable.”
