Nominate a Bedford nurse in national award


Attention nurses and healthcare assistants in Bedford: the deadline for entering the prestigious national RCNi Nurse Awards 2019 has been extended until Friday 15 February.

The awards, the profession’s top accolades, offer nurses, students and healthcare assistants a chance to share their innovations and expertise while celebrating their contribution to making patient care better and improving outcomes.

And patients can also nominate a nurse or healthcare professionals who has made a difference to their life.

Entries are open to individuals and teams in 20 categories covering the diversity of nursing.

Yvonne Coghill CBE, NHS England’s director of workforce race equality standard will chair the judging panel. She says: ‘We know nurses are incredibly busy and we wanted to give them more time to share their excellent practice with us, and in turn the rest of the profession. We look forward to reading about the difference nurses are making to patients all over the UK.’
