Prestigious Award For Cheshire Community Nurse

Jo Bowen
24 August 2020

A District Nurse in Cheshire has received the prestigious Queen’s nurse award. 

Joanne Bowen, Head of Quality, Nursing and Professional Leadership, at Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership received the title following her continued commitment to District Nursing. 

The Queen’s Nurse programme brings together community nurses to develop their professional skills and deliver outstanding patient care in the community.  

Jo has been recognised for her devotion to personalised care which ensures that each and every patient has individualised care with which they, their carers’ and family feel involved and informed. 

Personalised care promotes a joined up approach that supports self-management and long term wellbeing and independence.

Commenting on her recognition, Jo said: “The Queen’s Nurse title will provide me with an outstanding opportunity to network with other nurses from different backgrounds and with different experiences, giving opportunities for me to learn, develop, adopt and practice new skills which will ultimately benefit patient services and care.  

“I am passionate about developing community nursing and this will enable me to further promote the merits and strengths of what we do. I hope that my peers and other nursing staff will be inspired to also want to apply to continue promoting a culture of high standards and patient centred care.”
