Kettering General Hospital NHS FT
Dione is a passionate, innovative leader who is committed to transforming and improving the practice of clinicians and care of patients through the optimisation and adoption of digital technology in healthcare.
Dione has an extraordinary set of skills, which, fortunately for the rest of us, she is willing to share! Dione is a pivotal member of the Digital Health CNIO national advisory panel and chairs the Midlands digital nursing network with the primary focus of fostering a community of shared learning and support for digital nurses, midwives and AHPs. Dione’s generosity of knowledge extends beyond her 9-5 role and as of this year she had committed to mentoring 4 future digital leaders, all of whom are at different stages in their digital career.
Dione has pushed the boundaries of transformation and innovation within her own Trust and is now doing all she can to help support others. This support includes conducting webinars, workshops and 1:1 support sessions for other Trusts who are trying to adopt similar EPR systems.
In 2020, Dione was awarded the Women in Tech Digital Leader of the year award for her “”paper out of pocket”” initiative that transformed patient handover at Kettering Hospital. Following this, Dione was welcomed into the first cohort of Florence Nightingale Foundation Digital Leadership Scholars.
In 2021, Dione was awarded the Ruth May CNO Silver award for her outstanding contributions to digital leadership, recognising her awe-inspiring dedication to supporting digital leaders of the future and pushing the boundaries of leadership and innovation in the nursing profession.
