London (PRWEB UK) 27 March 2013
Through its strong belief in truly supporting and giving back to the industry, ID Medical sponsored the leading award at nursing’s most prestigious event, the British Journal of Nursing Awards 2013, by presenting Geoffrey Walker who won Nurse Of The Year 2013.
Nick Napier-Andrews, head of strategic accounts at ID Medical, the UK’s leading force in the provision of healthcare professionals, is pictured presenting Geoffrey Walker, with his Nurse Of The Year Award 2013 for his duties as matron general medicine, Cardiology and specialist nursing services at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Dorset, initiated the public patient involvement group, which has just celebrated 10 years of existence and opened and developed the medical investigations unit as an alternative to inpatient admissions. Mr Walker was honoured in the Queen’s birthday honours list receiving an OBE in 2009.
Nick Napier-Andrews commented, “Understanding why Mr Walker won this award is indeed humbling. In the current climate of change within the NHS, where so much is being focused upon cuts and cost efficiencies, Mr Walker’s commitment and the continued success of the public patient involvement group is truly remarkable.”
“By holding more than 80% of supplier contracts in hospitals across the UK ID Medical does have a thorough understanding of such changing landscapes, and working as an approved supplier on all GPS, HTE and LPP frameworks, ID Medical is capable of fully training and developing its nurses, locums and healthcare professionals to attain and exceed required levels of patient experience including quality, safety and care. Nonetheless, nothing can shine the light to Mr Walker who so deservedly achieved the BJN’s Nurse of the Year 2013. By being nominated by his colleagues too clearly demonstrates why he is held in such high esteem with such an enormous contribution to Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and his colleagues. Many, many congratulations Mr Walker on your most commendable achievement."
