Dr Andrew Finney and Catharine Thwaites awarded the ‘Queen’s Nurse’ title
Dr Andrew Finney, Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow, and Catharine Thwaites, Lecturer and Practitioner in Rheumatology, have been awarded the ‘Queen’s Nurse’ title.
The title of ‘Queen’s Nurse’ (QN) is awarded to individual nurses who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to patient care and nursing practice.
Dr Andrew Finney said "I am honoured to be awarded the title of 'Queen's Nurse as it recognises my continuing commitment to improving standards of care in primary care nursing. My application was based on both my educational and research roles in primary care and was supported by two student testimonials. The award allows me to be part of a community of Queen's Nurses, opening up new networks and opportunities."
Catharine Thwaites said "I am delighted to have been awarded the title of Queen's Nurse. Membership of the Queen's Nursing Institute will enable me to develop my academic, teaching and research opportunities in the community."
They will be presented with their awards at a presentation in London on the 21 June.
