Community nurses get royal approval

Specialist children’s community nurses from Hampshire Hospitals were commended for their work by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex at a charity’s special award ceremony.


The children’s community nurse team, based in Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, received the prestigious award for ‘most inspirational health team’ at the WellChild Awards, recognising the compassion, dedication and incredible care the nurses provide to sick children in the community.


They were chosen from hundreds of nominations, after being nominated by several parents of children they cared for, as well as a consultant paediatrician who recognised the amazing care they provide every day.


Wendy Green, who leads the team of nine specialist children’s nurses, attended the award ceremony in London with four of her colleagues.


She said: “I am so proud of the entire team for this award and it feels really special to have been nominated by families we have looked after.
