Supportive care specialist nurse for respiratory and end-of-life care Shereen Proctor wins Adult Nurse of the Year.
A specialist respiratory nurse from Nottingham has won the Nottingham Evening Post Adult Nurse of the Year Award.
Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis worked with Shereen last year to set up new unit on Fleming Ward at Nottingham Hospital which provides dedicated care for respiratory patients.
The four new APF Supportive Care Rooms on Fleming Ward have been sponsored by Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis and will enable patients to be admitted directly to the hospital to receive specialist respiratory care and end-of-life care. The charity has paid for the decoration and furnishing of the rooms, including beds and facilities to allow a partner or family member to remain overnight with a patient during their hospital stay.
Adult Nurse of the Year Shereen Proctor, 34, of Newthorpe, was picked for, among other reasons, her vital role in setting up a new unit on Fleming Ward at City Hospital.
Shereen said: “It’s such an honour to be nominated, even to get this far is overwhelming but to win is unbelievable.
“We’re doing something that we do every day. I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s nominated me.”
