Trust nurses celebrating after being awarded prestigious title of Queen’s (…)



Julia Bryant, Divisional Quality Lead and Fiona Campbell, Professional Development Lead for our 0-19 Health and Wellbeing Service have been given the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI). The trust’s nurses will be attending the 2018 QNI Awards Ceremony in London in June where they will be presented with their title.


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.


Julia Bryant, Divisional Quality Lead, said: “Not only is nursing in my blood, it’s in my heart and a part of who I am. Nursing was my dream job from a very early age. My enthusiasm and passion for making a difference to people’s lives has given me the drive and motivation to get me where I am today.


I am absolutely delighted to receive the title of Queen’s Nurse as this means that my passion for improving the quality of care offered to children and young people and my contribution to improving services within our children’s division has been recognised.”


Fiona Campbell, Professional Development Lead, said: “The Queen’s Nurse Award to me means a commitment to lifelong learning, as health goals continually change and opportunities to develop and adapt services are endless. Having a positive attitude to changes and continually thinking about alternate ways to practice and move our service forward is a strength I adhere to.”


The  0-19 Health and Wellbeing Service supports children, young people and their families across Wirral and Cheshire East. The service includes health visitors, school nurses and immunisers as well, as teams from dietetics, speech and language, continence, weight management and Family Nurse Partnership. Every month, across Wirral and Cheshire East, the service sees and provides support for approximately 15,200 children and young people.


Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of the QNI said: “On behalf of the QNI I would like to congratulate Julia and Fiona and welcome them as a Queen’s Nurse. Queen’s Nurses serve as leaders and role models in community nursing, delivering high quality health care across the country. The application and assessment process to become a Queen’s Nurse is rigorous and requires clear commitment to improving care for patients, their families and carers. We look forward to working with Julia and Fiona and all other new Queen’s Nurses who have received the title this year.”
