Delight for nurse set for national awards ceremony
7:00am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
A NURSE charged with leading the fight against potentially deadly hospital infections has been shortlisted for a prestigious national health award.
Carol Clive’s efforts to help stamp out infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile (C.diff) have seen her make a final shortlist of just 10, from more than 1,000 nominations, in the Clinical Leader of the Year category at the 2013 Health Service Journal Awards.
Mrs Clive is nurse consultant for infection prevention and control at Worcestershire Health and Care Trust – the county’s main provider of community, specialist and mental health care.
She said she was “shocked and delighted” to be nominated and paid tribute to her team and to clinical and support staff.
“It is testament to the work that the team undertake to ensure high standards of infection prevention and control – and me being shortlisted is recognition of everyone’s efforts and achievements,” she said.
She will now attend an interview in front of an expert panel in London next month before attending the glitzy awards ceremony in November.
