Nurses involved in aftermath of terror attacks honoured at Nursing Times Awards

  • 1 Comment

Nurses from the hospital trusts that treated the victims of this year’s terror attacks in Manchester and London were honoured last night at the annual Nursing Times Awards.

Representatives from the 11 trusts involved in caring for those caught up in the attacks received a standing ovation as they each received a Special Recognition Award for their role.

“These nurses have shown the NHS at its very best”

Jenni Middleton, editor of Nursing Times and the host of the awards, said: “The Nursing Times Awards shine a light on these areas of the profession that we don’t see as much in the media.

“But sometimes, nursing is about rescue – and this year as well as our awards for the clinical specialities, teams and individuals who are pioneers in their fields, we have honoured the 11 trusts involved in providing a response to the London and Manchester terror attacks this year,” she said.

“These nurses have shown the NHS at its very best, and it is right we pay tribute to their bravery and dedication in caring for the victims of those attacks and their families,” said Ms Middleton.

“We are proud to offer those 11 trusts each a Special Recognition Award,” she added.

The 11 trusts that received Special Recognition Awards:

  • Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
  • Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Stockport NHS Foundation Trust
  • University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust
  • Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust
  • Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Bolton NHS Foundation Trust
  • Barts Health NHS Trust
  • King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation
  • University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Meanwhile, Emma Bleasdale, from the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, was also named “nurse of the year” last night at the Nursing Times Awards.

  • Do we have any other Trusts outside of the North West and London, seems to be the same old faces at these awards.
