Three East Lancashire nurses, including two from Burnley, have been recognised with a prestigious award.
Respiratory nurse specialist Barbara Lubomski, who is based at the St Peter’s Centre, Jane Tancock, nurse and business manager for community division at Burnley General Hospital, and Janet Sarsfield, diabetes nurse specialist at the Accrington Pals Health Centre were all awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse (QN) by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI).
The title of Queen’s Nurse highlights a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership.
Crystal Oldman, chief executive of the QNI, said: “Congratulations are due to Barbara, Jane and Janet for their success.
“Community nurses operate in an ever more challenging world and our role is to support them as effectively as we can. The QN title is a key part of this and we would encourage other community nurses to apply.” Hayley Citrine, acting chief nurse at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, added: “We are very proud of Barbara, Jane and Janet and their Queen’s Nurse award is testament to their dedication and hard work they consistently provide to all their patients.”
