On Friday 20th March 2015, ID Medical joined the British Journal of Nursing (BJN) to celebrate achievements in nursing from all over the UK and further afield at the glittering British Journal of Nursing Awards ceremony held at Shakespeare’s Underglobe in London.
The British Journal of Nursing acknowledges the enormous contribution individual nurses make towards the development of the profession as a whole. National professional awards such as these, not only shine a light where it is most deserved, they also raise the profile and understanding of how nursing is at the centre of all patient care.
As official sponsor of the awards, ID Medical presented an award to the winner and highly commended of the esteemed ‘Nurse of the Year’ category.
Craig, trainee manager at ID Medical, who presented the award, shared his thoughts on the event: “It was a fantastic evening as we joined the BJN in recognising all the hard work and efforts of nurses and specialist nurses across the UK within the last year.
As a company, we were very proud and privileged to be able to give out such a prestigious award as every day we hear of our nurses going above and beyond for their patients. We look forward to the next event and supporting the fantastic work of the British Journal of Nursing.”
