A SKEGNESS nurse is one of just two in the county to have been awarded the nationally recognised Queen’s Nurse status in the latest round of awards.

Skegness respiratory nurse Tracy Cunningham joined Louth’s Julie Bevan when they both received their titles at a special event.

The two nurses, from the Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), joined 28 others from across the UK to receive their awards from Dame Christine Beasley, chief nursing officer on behalf on the Queen’s Nurse Institute.

Mrs Cunningham, who works as a Respiratory Complex Case Manager in Skegness said: “I am delighted to have received the title and to be recognised for caring for patients with complex respiratory problems. I look forward to learning from other Queen’s Nurses to improve the care our team provides.”
