Tricia Wren, Acting Director Nursing and Quality, has been given the prestigious title of Queen's Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI).

Susan Thompson, Named Nurse Safeguarding Children, was also given the title of Queen's Nurse at the same ceremony.

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, Chief Executive of the QNI, said: "Congratulations are due to Tricia and Susan for their success. Community nurses are expert professionals who make a vital contribution to patient health and wellbeing every day. As a national charity the QNI can share innovation and best practice, supporting nurses to deliver excellent healthcare to patients in local communities."
