A recipient of the Queen’s Nurse title who is based at QEH has told of her pride at the award.
Rapid Assessment Team lead Sara Tansley attended the Queen’s Nursing Institute Awards Ceremony in London with husband Lee, a medical equipment manager at QEH.
Actor, author and science communicator Stephen McGann, who conferred the badges and certificates on the 121 Queen’s Nurses at the event, praised the nurses for their commitment to patient care in the community.
Sara, who is employed by Norfolk Community Health and Care Trust, said: “I hadn’t really considered the enormity of being awarded until I was actually seated in the room with so many inspiring people. I was also more than happy to receive my award from Stephen McGann.”
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.
