Welsh nurse appointed as honorary nurse to the Queen

  • Comment
A Welsh nurse has been appointed the title of Queen’s Honorary Nurse in recognition of his contribution to military nursing and work in disaster areas.

Kevin Davies is a principal lecturer in the University of Glamorgan’s Faculty of Health, Sport and Science, where he teaches disaster relief healthcare.

The tenured appointment of Queen’s Honorary Nurse falls to only two army nurses at a time, one regular and one reserve. The current regular incumbent is the director of army nursing. Mr Davies will take up the reserve appointment in line with his 2008 promotion to full Colonel and appointment as Commanding Officer of the Welsh Field Hospital.

The honour follows his appointment as a Member of the Royal Red Cross in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list of 1997, in recognition of his contribution in Bosnia in 1996. He also served as the deputy senior nursing officer in Iraq for a 200-bed field hospital. Most recently, in Afghanistan, he formed part of the command group for the UK field hospital.
