Dr Beth Hardy, of the University’s Department of Health Sciences, was recognised as part of the Institute’s programme designed for community nurses wishing to develop their professional skills and promote the highest standards of patient care.

A Queen's Nurse is committed to high standards of practice and patient-centred care. The Queen’s Nursing Institute supports innovation and best practice to improve care for patients and believes in bringing together community nurses who share common values.

Dr Hardy said: "I am very proud to have been awarded the title of Queen's Nurse, and to have had my commitment to patient care, nursing practice and leadership acknowledged in this way. The award offers me further opportunities to link with community practitioners throughout the country via regional and national networks and will support my work as I continue to positively impact on patient care through education, research and leadership.”
