A West Norfolk nurse who is dedicated to improving care for patients with Parkinson’s has won a national award.
Tincy Jose won the Patient Involvement in Safety Award for her work to ensure time-critical medication is delivered to patients on time every time.
She was one of 516 entries in the Health Service Journal Patient Safety Awards.
Tincy was diagnosed with Parkinson’s four years ago and is committed to helping educate colleagues at the hospital through her own experience. She works closely with the ward’s clinical nurse educator to help make sure the right policies are in place.
She said: “It was such a wonderful evening. The atmosphere was amazing, and I was so happy when I heard our name announced as the winners.
This national recognition is so important in raising awareness of the importance to deliver time-critical medication on time, every time.”
Alice Webster, CEO at QEH, said: “Everyone at Team QEH is thrilled for Tincy and her colleagues at the NHS Professionals – Living and Working with Parkinson’s group. This is a fantastic achievement and very well deserved by all involved.”
