Solent NHS Trust is proud to announce that Angela Anderson, Deputy Chief Nurse, is a finalist for The Nursing Times ‘Nurse Leader of the Year Award’. In tonight’s sparkling ceremony, being held at The Grosvenor Hotel London, the nursing finalists will come together to find out who has been awarded the overall ‘Nurse Leader of the Year’ Award.

Angela, who has been responsible for overseeing the delivery of Solent’s COVID vaccination centre rollout across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, is being formally recognised for her dedication to the nursing profession, her colleagues and the communities which Solent NHS Trust serves.

The nomination for the ‘Nurse Leader of the Year’ included moving testimonials from nursing and nonclinical colleagues from across the Solent region who wanted to thank Angela for her compassionate leadership during the most demanding time ever experienced in the NHS. The nomination was also supported by charitable organisations and community leaders.

No stranger to accolades, Angela was previously made a Queen’s Nurse by the Queen’s Nursing Institute for demonstrating a high level of commitment to patient care and nursing practice.

Jackie Munro, Chief Nurse at Solent NHS Trust, said: “I’m incredibly proud that Angela has been recognised for her commitment to nursing and our communities. Being a finalist for The Nursing Times ‘Nurse Leader of the Year Award’ is a huge accolade in itself but we believe Angela’s dedication to nursing, particularly to the COVID vaccination roll out across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, would make her a worthy recipient of this this huge honour.

“Only a handful of nurses across the country are chosen as finalists for this award every year and it is a mark of professional excellence. Angela’s hard work and dedication to nursing has been wonderful to see and she is a phenomenal asset to the Trust.”
