Moulton Seas End woman Ruth Foster has been made a Queen’s Nurse, an award given to those who demonstrate a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership.
Complex case manager Ruth began her NHS career in 1991 as a dental health educator for South Lincolnshire before being seconded to do nurse training. She then joined the Bourne Community Team as a staff nurse.
Ruth said: “I am thrilled to have it. I’ve worked hard since qualifying and I think it’s a well-earned reward for all the effort and hard work.”
A ceremony to award the title was held in May in London, where Ruth was accompanied by her husband.
