South East Representative Charlotte Hill has been recognised at the RCN Awards 2015, receiving a 'Highly Commended' award in the category of Safety Representative of the Year.
Charlotte is a Deputy Sister in Endoscopy Unit and RCN Health & Safety Rep at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. She was recognised for her work to identify and change unsafe practice within her Trust, and for forging important links between employer and employees. She skilfully managed decontamination services within her endoscopy department, and developed an impressive safe staffing audit.
The South East Region, and in particular RCN Officer Karen Wood who nominated her, are delighted at Charlotte's achievement.
Charlotte was presented with her award at the opening ceremony for RCN Congress 2015, which incorporates the RCN Awards.
