A Dudley nurse who helps patients with learning disabilities has won a prestigious national award.
Jacqui Howells, Learning Disabilities Liaison Nurse for The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, was crowned with the Good Nurse Award at the Great British Care Awards at The ICC in Birmingham.
Jacqui, who helps patients with learning disabilities to ensure they receive the best possible care and treatment, was thrilled by the honour.
“Receiving a national award means so much to me but the fact that my patients nominated me and think that I am a good nurse makes it even more special,” she said.
Dawn Wardell, Chief Nurse for the Trust, was delighted for Jacqui.
“This is a fantastic achievement and Jacqui should be very proud,” said Dawn.
“Jacqui has worked incredibly hard to ensure that patients with learning disabilities are recognised and it is wonderful that her hard work has been rewarded at a national level. Well done Jacqui!”
