Nurse Josie Roberts has been recognised for the exceptional care she gives her young patients.
The children’s nurse at University Hospitals Dorset has won The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Award.
Josie was nominated by colleagues and the families she works closely with for her leadership of the team and dedication to those she supports.
The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Award for Outstanding Service is awarded by the Queens Nursing Institute to community nurses who provide exceptional care to their patients and demonstrate a continuing passion and enthusiasm for nursing.
Josie is clinical lead for the community nursing team, with a base at Poole Hospital. The team aims to support children within their family environment, by minimising hospital admission and ensuring if they do need to stay in hospital, they can go home quickly.
They work closely with schools, GPs, hospices, social services, occupational therapists and physiotherapists.
Josie said: “It means the world to me to get this award. The community team does excellent work and my role is to help keep staff, children and families safe. This award gives the whole community team a massive boost and I am honoured to receive it. I can’t wait to see what exciting work the team does next.”
