Lancaster Medical Practice clinician receives Queen’s Nurse title

Posted on:

Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP), Emma Hodgson, has been awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse by the Queen’s Nursing Institute.

The title of Queen’s Nurse is awarded to registered nurses who demonstrate commitment to providing high standards of patient care, learning and leadership. To receive the title, applicants face a rigorous application and assessment process where they must provide written statements demonstrating their knowledge and expertise. Their application is supported by feedback provided from others.

Emma is a well-respected and trusted member of the practice team, having worked here for seven years, starting with us as a Practice Nurse before progressing to an ACP. In that time, she has also completed two Masters qualifications and several other qualifications including a Postgraduate certificate and a Postgraduate diploma. Emma is also our Freedom to Speak Up Guardian and is currently clinical lead for our flu and Covid-19 vaccination programme.

Of her achievement, Emma said, “It is a privilege and honour to be recognised as a Queen’s nurse. It is exciting and motivating to continue to improve excellence and patient care in the community.”

This award is a reflection of the hard work and dedication that Emma puts into her role. Well done Emma on your fantastic achievement!
