A Spalding matron attended the Queen’s Garden party after being nominated by a patient’s family for her dedicated work around frailty.
Kim Barr, matron at Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), who works at the Johnson Hospital, spent the afternoon at the Queen’s garden party with husband Robert.
“I was nominated by a patient’s family and also for the work I have been doing in exploring how we can better support those who are frail.”
On arrival at Buckingham Place, the couple were taken to the gardens where they had a chance to soak up the impressive surroundings.
After enjoying afternoon tea, they joined the crowds to meet The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Princess Ann, Princess Beatrice and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
Kim will be spending more time in London after securing one of only 24 places on the King’s College Older Person’s Nurse Fellowship. Kim will travel monthly to hear from experts about the quality safety, service transformation and innovation in older person’s care.
