Congratulations to our Director of Nursing Professor Angela Wallace who received an RCN Fellowship award at the 2016 RCN Congress which took place in Glasgow.
RCN Fellowships are awarded to UK registered nurses who have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of nursing and/or health care, and the RCN often calls on the expertise and experience of Fellows to help with projects.
Prof Wallace is pictured with (L-R) Michael Brown, Chair of RCN Council and RCN Scottish Board; Cecilia Anim, RCN President and Janet Davies, RCN Chief Executive and General Secretary.
Angela celebrated her award with members of the NHS Forth Valley Nurses Choir who had been invited to sing during the opening ceremony.
NHS Forth Valley also scooped the People’s Choice Award in the RCN Care on Camera competition, held to celebrate 100 years of the RCN. It attracted almost 900 entries across the UK and the picture, snapped by a member of the Communications team, was voted the most popular from a shortlist of 50.
The NHS Forth Valley successes were featured widely on Twitter and Facebook.
