Hospital celebrates staff achievement

15 October 2018
Staff in a variety of roles at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust took a brief time out from their busy schedules to receive certificates after successfully completing their nursing and healthcare qualifications in the past year.

These included apprenticeships, the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) and the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) which lead to Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) nurse registration and preceptorship for newly qualified nurses.

The event, at the Frank Lee leisure centre on the hospital campus, on Thursday (11 October) was attended by chief nurse Lorraine Szeremeta, director of workforce David Wherrett and representatives from wards and departments were there to congratulate their staff.

Also there was CUH chairman Dr Mike More, who told staff: “I am full of admiration for the amount of work and commitment you have all shown to achieve your qualifications.  These were not easy to do alongside caring for your patients on a daily basis.  All of us at CUH are grateful for the hard work you do and the difference you make to our patients’ journeys during their time in our care."
