December 15, 2023
Colleagues from our Trust have been given the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute
The title indicates a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership. Nurses who hold the title benefit from developmental workshops, bursaries, networking opportunities, and a shared professional identity.
Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of the QNI said: ‘On behalf of the QNI I would like to congratulate our colleagues and welcome them as a Queen’s Nurse.
Queen’s Nurses serve as leaders and role models in community nursing, delivering high quality health care across the country. The application and assessment process to become a Queen’s Nurse is rigorous and requires clear commitment to improving care for patients, their families and carers. We look forward to working with them and all other new Queen’s Nurses who have received the title this year.’
Colleagues to receive the title this year include:
– District Nurse Lucy Cole;
– Community Matron for Frailty, Fiona Eggerton;
– CYPS Registered Practitioner, Anna Evans-Smith;
– Practice Development Lead (Community Nursing), Julie Jones;
– Deputy Director of Nursing and Quality, Hannah Williams;
– Tewkesbury District Nursing Clinical Lead, Becky Cullis; and
– Physical Health Nurse at Wotton Lawn, Sal Leat.
John Trevains, Director of Nursing, Quality and Therapies, said: “This is an amazing achievement. The Queen’s Nurse title is highly sought after and only so many nurses are recognised each year. The application process is robust and involves feedback from colleagues and patients. All seven colleagues are amazing practitioners and I am really proud that they work for our Trust. Huge congratulations to them all – they are all very worthy recipients of this prestigious title.”

The title of Queen’s Nurse is open to registered nurses with more than five years’ experience working in the community. Managers and patients provide feedback about applicants, which is assessed along with their application. More information about how to apply is available at
