Continence nurses win at Nursing Times awards

  • Comment

Continence nurse Joanne Mangnall and her colleagues from NHS Rotherham were named as winners in the Continence category at the Nursing Times awards last week.

The community continence team work with clients who experience bladder and bowel problems.

The team set up a new service which is the facility for ongoing clinical reviews, ensuring prescribed products remain effective and appropriate for
clients.

Anne Salkeld, head of adult nursing services, said that Joanne and her team constantly took a two-pronged approach to service development.

“They focus on areas of inequality while raising the standard of quality for patients. This is particularly evident in this recent development which has provided an inclusive approach for all patients who have catheter products prescribed, having access to a specialist service to
support their ongoing care and improve their quality of life,” she said.

The judges said: “This innovative project has already produced some stunning outcomes and has the potential to continue to improve services.”
