Healthcare colleague, Vanessa Wright at the RCNi Nurse Awards 2018

July 16 2018

You may remember our news story (here) in May when we announced Vanessa Wright, mental health lead at West Midlands Integrated Urgent Care, had reached the finals of the RCNi Awards...

Well, on 4th July 2018 Vanessa donned her black tie for the awards ceremony at Westminster Plaza Hotel alongside Mandy Jones, Ryan Ridgway, Natasha Bartlett, Maria Langdown, Dan Eddie, Caroline Warren and Kate Carter, having been successful in making it to the last 5 finalists in the awards category of “Mental Health Practice”.

Vanessa said: "I was proud to represent Care UK for the evening. It was a fantastic night celebrating the work of nurses across the country. The awards were presented by ITV presenter, Kate Garraway and we had a special guest appearance from Game of Thrones star, Emelia Clark."

We’d like to say congratulations again to Vanessa for reaching the finals – with over 800 nominations it’s a huge achievement to have been one of the last five finalists!

Well done Vanessa!
