Practice Nurse Conference Awards

Congratulations go to a Medway nurse for having her dedication recognised at the Practice Nurse Conference.


Angela Cornell, an Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Sunlight Centre Surgery in Gillingham was named runner up in the Paula Carr Diabetes Category at the recent Kent and Medway General Practice Nurse Awards.


Sarah Vaux, Chief Nurse at Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Angela was nominated by one of her colleagues, because of her tireless work, gentle persistence and enabling approach to diabetic care.


“Angela’s efforts will have helped improve a great many lives and on behalf of all at the CCG I send our warmest congratulations.”


The winners were announced at the Practice Nurse Conference last month, but as Angela was unable to attend, friends at the practice witnessed her presentation during a visit from Sarah Vaux.
