Queen’s nurse award for Angela
A PRACTICE nurse at a Nailsea medical centre has been awarded the accolade of Queen’s Nurse.
Colleagues of Angela Reed-Fox and patients at Nailsea Family Practice, based at Tower House Medical Centre, gave glowing testimonies about her work over the two years she has been there, which impressed the judging panel at the Queen’s Nursing Institute.
Angela, aged 32 from Portishead, joins a network of Queen’s Nurses, some of whom influence policy and primary care practice at a national level.
Nurses have to demonstrate their commitment to patient-centred values and continually improving practice to gain the title.
Angela had to write a submission about her clinical practice, as well as get references from patients and colleagues.
