Professor Ursula Gallagher, QNI Fellow
29 July 2021
The trustees and staff of the Queen’s Nursing Institute were very saddened to hear of the death of Professor Ursula Gallagher MBE.
Ursula became a Fellow of the QNI in 2017 and was an ardent supporter of all the QNI’s work.
Her support of the nursing profession, her legacy of the highest quality, evidence-based care and promoting and embracing innovation, will continue – and all remembered with her fabulous sense of humour. She was a nursing legend and we will miss her terribly.Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, QNI's Chief Executive
Ursula previously worked as Deputy Chief Inspector for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and was awarded an MBE in June 2021, for services to healthcare, patient safety and healthcare education.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to her family and friends at this very sad time.
