The excellent patient care provided by a Long Eaton nurse has been recognised by health professionals.

Helen Cooper has been named as a Queen’s Nurse – a national title recognised as a badge of commitment and dedication to community nursing.

Helen, who is based at Long Eaton Health Centre, part of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, works with families in Erewash.

The title of Queen’s Nurse, awarded by the Queen’s Nursing Institute, is a badge of commitment to community nursing, excellent patient care, and to learning and leadership in nursing.

Helen was one of only 58 community nurses from the UK to receive the Queen’s Nurse title at an awards ceremony in London, presented by Chief Nursing Officer for England Jane Cummings.

Tracy Allen, chief executive of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, said: “This is well-deserved recognition for Helen. High quality nursing care is at the heart of our services.”
