Berkshire Healthcare nurse included in The Nursing Times prestigious ‘Impact List’

Rebecca Chester

We are immensely proud to announce that Rebecca Chester, Consultant Nurse at Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, was included in The Nursing Times’ Impact list, in celebration of the NHS’ 75th anniversary.

The list included 75 nurses and midwives whose work has had a significant impact on the NHS, either through impact on practice, leadership, or services during their career, or those viewed as rising stars.

Rebecca is a Consultant Nurse for people with learning disabilities. She provides clinical leadership to the learning disability services as well as holding an advisory role in supporting the needs of people with learning disabilities at the Trust. In addition, she also works for NHS England one day a week as clinical advisor in learning disability and autism.

To be included in The Nursing Times’ Impact List is an outstanding achievement and shines a light on the incredible work Rebecca does at Berkshire Healthcare.

Rebecca Chester says: “From a personal perspective, it was incredible to be recognised within the Impact List.  There were many colleagues who I have worked with during my clinical and academic career also listed, who have inspired me and shaped me as a nurse and so to be recognised alongside them was amazing.  It was great to see learning disability nursing represented so well and it’s not just about the people who are on the list, but the nurses who are doing an incredible job to make a difference to for the lives of people with learning disabilities every day.”

The list was celebrated by the media outlet who hosted an exclusive reception to mark the anniversary, where they celebrated Rebecca and the other 74 on the list, as well as key leaders from the profession and health service.
