Long-standing CRN South London staff member retires

A long-standing NIHR CRN South London team member is stepping down after 12 years with the Network.

Nhlanhla Mguni, who has worked as a lead research nurse, research delivery manager, workforce development lead and education and training officer at CRN South London, is retiring to spend more time with her family. Nhlanhla said:

"It has been great working for the Network. I am losing a part of my life as most of my nursing career has been in south London. Although I am sad to leave, there are times when one has to let go and start something new. I’m retiring and planning to enjoy time with my grandchildren. I also will take part in some community projects here and in Zimbabwe.

"I’ve worked with great people over the last 12 years. I’ve built friendships I will cherish and continue. There are too many great memories to recall. I'm proud to have supported COVID-19 research and people's development in their careers."

The NIHR is the largest funder of health and care research in England. In 2021-2022, the NIHR CRN helped recruit 700,602 people to 308 COVID-19 studies in England.

Dawn Beaumont-Jewell, Deputy Chief Operating Officer for CRN South London, said:

"On behalf of the entire team, I thank Nhlanhla for her service throughout the last 12 years. She holds a special place in the hearts of the many people she has helped over the years. Nhlanhla, we will miss you, but we hope you have an amazing retirement. Here's to the next chapter of your story!"
