Two more Trust staff have been awarded the prestigious title of Queen's Nurse (QN) by community charity The Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI) - Diana Buck and Janine Patrickson-Daly.
The title is not an award for past service but indicates a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership. Nurses who hold the title benefit from developmental workshops, bursaries, networking opportunities and a shared professional identity.
Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of the QNI said: "Queen's Nurses serve as leaders and role models in community nursing, delivering high quality healthcare across the country. The application and assessment process to become a queens nurse is rigorous and requires clear commitment to improving care for patients, their families and carers.”
Anna Simpson, General Manager Offender Health said of the award for Diana, Practice Development Matron: “This is fantastic news and is more than deserved for Di who works tirelessly with our staff teams to educate, train and manage the long term condition agenda across our prison sites."
Janine’s award has been presented for her work in two roles, as Trust Infection Prevention and Control Strategic lead until October 2017 and now as Head of Inpatient Services, Lings Bar Hospital and the Short Stay Reablement Unit.
Congratulations to both Di and Janine.
