Clinical Matron shortlisted for Nursing Times Award

Congratulations to Ian Moyle, Clinical Matron for cardiology and respiratory medicine who’s recently been shortlisted in this year’s national Nursing Times Awards.
Ian has been selected from a strong field of nominees in the Nurse Leader of the Year category and is one of just 10 finalists. He was nominated by Divisional Nurse, Elizabeth Trew who describes Ian as an ‘outstanding clinical leader’.

Ian’s nomination features his work on developing and redesigning the matron ward round tool into an easy and understandable format so that all team members understand expectations and are motivated to improving standards, whilst promoting excellent and compassionate care to patients.

“Ian is an exceptional role model. He is always professional with patients and staff and is a credit to the nursing profession.”

Elizabeth says, “Ian is an exceptional role model. He is always professional with patients and staff and is a credit to the nursing profession. Ian totally understood the need for a tool that evidenced the care given and which was also required to ensure not just improvement but sustained improvement.”

Ian said, “It’s a fantastic surprise and such an honour to be shortlisted for what essentially are the nursing profession Oscars! I’m fortunate to work with and for a fabulous team who are motivated and eager to keep on making improvements and striving to provide outstanding care. This nomination really reflects all their hard work, too.”

Winners of the awards are due to be announced at a presentation event in October. Good luck Ian!
