Local Nurse Practitioner shortlisted for prestigious award
21st May 2019
The Patients Choice Award reflects the outstanding commitment and care provided by nurses across the country on a daily basis. It provides an opportunity for members of the public to thank a nurse, midwife, health visitor, healthcare assistant or assistant practitioner who has made a real difference to their or a loved one’s life.
Mrs Wilson was nominated by car accident victim, Nicola Davis, who describes her as a dedicated patient advocate.
“After a car accident, I have back problems, arthritis in my hip and chronic neuropathic pain, not to mention psychological and social effects. Without Ms Wilson listening to me and acting on my changes, I would not be the person I am today.
“Her caring, proactive attitude and courage to try new things have meant that I am able to remain working, have a more normal social life and no longer need counselling. She involves me in my care, gives me choices, has fought for me to see specialists and stays late to call me to check on my pain.”
Award Nominee, Mrs Wilson added “I am thrilled and surprised to be nominated for such an award. It is always humbling to receive recognition for what many NHS staff contributes similarly on a daily basis.
“I am pleased that Nicola feels that I have made such a positive impact to her care.”The RCNi Nursing Awards aim to celebrate the very best nursing care provided across the country, covering a range of specialties these awards are widely regarded as the highest accolade for nurses in the UK.
The winner of the Patients Choice Award will be decided by public vote and presented on Wednesday 3rd July 2019 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London.
