The QNI Awards Ceremony was held at the Royal Garden Hotel in London on 30 October 2017. Over 300 nurses and guests attended the prestigious event.

The Awards Ceremony recognises and celebrates the achievements in community nursing and the dedication, the passion and the skills of nurses working in the community today.

The event was hosted by Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, QNI Chief Executive, and Kate Billingham CBE, Chair of Council. The guest of honour was Professor Jean White CBE, QNI Fellow and Chief Nursing Officer in Wales (pictured above with new Queen’s Nurses).
