Jane Lunt: Chief Nurse

I’m responsible for…
I’m the Head of Quality and Chief Nurse for NHS Liverpool CCG and have a special interest in children and adult safeguarding.

My career began in
I originally trained as a nurse at The Royal Liverpool Hospital working in the accident and emergency department and then orthopaedics, before training as a midwife. I became a specialist midwife in 1992 and worked in health visiting in Liverpool visiting families in a number of challenging areas. In 1999 I became a practice mentor in health visiting, supporting the training of student health visitors and working closely with the universities to support curriculum development and the provision of appropriate student placements. It was while working as a health visitor that I came into contact with families with safeguarding and child protection needs which generated my interest in safeguarding. I’ve worked in a number of commissioning roles including lead commissioner for children’s and maternity services and in November 2012 I became Chief Nurse at NHS Liverpool CCG.

I like coming to work/my role because
I am passionate about improving services and care for patients. I try and use the barometer of ‘my family’ – what if it was my mum or dad or brother who needed or  was using our services? I am proud to be a nurse working in the NHS and in Liverpool and I support the values of the NHS.

Outside of work I
I love the theatre, cinema, and watching live music. I also swim and enjoy cooking.
