CLCH nurse wins Queen's nurse award
Lilian Ethapemi , CLCH's clinical lead for continence services in Inner London has been awarded the prestigious Queen's nurse award in recognition of her dedicated and longstanding career with the NHS.
The awards are run twice a year by the Queen's Nursing Institute, a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in their own homes.
Mark Mgobo, Clinical Business Unit Manager for Specialist Nursing at CLCH said: "Lilian exemplifies the very best of CLCH and the NHS by promoting compassion, patient choice, clinical excellence and strong leadership and I would like to congratulate her for this remarkable achievement."
The title of Queen's nurse (QN) indicates a commitment to the values of community nursing, to excellent patient care and to a continuous process of learning and leadership. Locally, these nurses are leading improvement projects and redesigning services to improve care for patients.
Lilian said: "I see the Queens nurse award as the start of a new phase in my nursing career, as it goes to further reinforce my commitment to excellent patient care.
I would like to thank every member of the continence promotion team, my colleagues and past and present managers for their support and belief in me."
