In memory of our colleague Dr Stan Mutsatsa (Senior Lecturer, Mental Health Nursing and UCU Health and Safety Representative). Stan joined the Mental Health Nursing Team at City, University of London in 2015. He originally qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in 1985, and subsequently practiced as an acute Mental Health Nurse at the Maudsley Hospital and as a Community Psychiatric Nurse in Brixton. Stan was a passionate educationalist and researcher, joining Kings College Institute of Psychiatry, Neuroscience in 2008 and working for several years as a Senior Lecturer at London South Bank University before joining City.
Stan was a much-valued colleague, supporting, caring and advocating for students and staff as both a nurse educator and Trade Union representative. Stan had a real ability to encourage students to think critically about their studies. His commitment to making challenging concepts accessible to students was well demonstrated through his work on medicines management and physical healthcare in mental health nursing, and included publication of several renowned textbooks in these areas. Stan will be remembered for his warmth, strong sense of humour and dedication to staff and students. He will be greatly missed at City and by clinical partners across London; our thoughts are with his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.
