Rachel Royall, NHS Digital's Director of Communications has been named in a prestigious list of the UK's top communications professionals.
The Powerbook, compiled by industry magazine PR Week, lists the most influential and respected comms professionals in the UK today.
Not only was Rachel included in the overall list but she was named sixth in the top ten most influential people in public sector PR and was the highest ranking woman on that list. All of those listed in the book were invited to an exclusive reception at London's The Ned on Monday night where the top ten lists were announced.
Rachel said: "It's such a huge privilege to do a job that I love in the public sector, and to have the ability to help to improve things for patients and the public. A comms career in the public sector isn't secondary to private sector roles it's full of diversity, challenge and complexity which make it a great place to be. I look forward to seeing more of my awesome female colleagues on the list in the future."
