Designing better mental healthcare facilities

Mental health leader among NHS staff recognised in Jubilee Honours

The Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation’s Mental Health Network, Sean Duggan, has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Honours List.

The award recognises his 40 years’ service dedicated to mental health service delivery, which has seen him lead various organisations in the sector, having started his career as a registered mental health nurse in the late 1970s. The Mental Health Network said: “Sean is a passionate supporter of multi-sector service delivery within mental health, and has ensured this is reflected in the membership of the Confederation’s Mental Health Network, which has grown under his leadership beyond statutory mental health Trusts to include independent and third sector organisations, including digital providers and housing associations. The Confederation’s thriving network now has 80 mental health providers in membership.”

Criminal justice and prison mental health have been priorities for Sean Duggan over the past 30 years. In 2006, he joined the Sainsbury’s Centre for Mental Health as Director of the Criminal Justice Programme, before becoming Chief Executive. Immediately before this, he was Director of Health and Social Care for Criminal Justice at the London Development Centre, and offender health consultant for the Department of Health. He trained as a registered mental health nurse in 1979.

Among other leading NHS figures recognised in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Honours List were:

  • Professor Stephen Powis, NHS England’s National Medical director, who has been knighted.
  • Chief Nursing Officer, Ruth May, made a Dame for her services to nursing, midwifery, and the NHS.
  • Julian Hartley, CEO of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, who has been knighted.
  • Sarah Jane Marsh, CEO of Birmingham Women and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, awarded a CBE.
  • Richard Barker, NHS England and NHS Improvement Regional director for the North East and Yorkshire, who has also been awarded a CBE

NHS Confederation CEO, Matthew Taylor, said: “These are all richly deserved awards, reflecting the admirable leadership each individual has displayed within their own organisation, as well as the role they have played nationally in helping the country respond to the pandemic.”
