The QNI recognises the necessity of excellent leadership at a strategic level in the delivery of nursing care in the community. For this reason, this year we have created The William Rathbone X Annual Award for Excellence in the Executive Nurse Leadership of Community Nursing Services. The Award is named in memory of an outstanding former member of the QNI’s Council, William Rathbone X, and has been generously funded by his family.
The Award gives national recognition of the impact of strategic nursing leadership in the delivery of excellent community nursing services. Further information about the award can be found here.
