Christina Named Nurse of the Year
18 May 2017

Christina O'Loughlin is set to have a tram named after her after being voted Nottingham’s Nurse of the Year.

Celebrating the individuals who show the very best of care and compassion on the city’s wards and maternity suites, the Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards took place at Nottingham Conference Centre, on Thursday (May 18) after a public vote decided who would take home the awards.

The ceremony, sponsored by NET and organised by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and the Nottingham Post, saw eight different category winners following thousands of public votes.

Student Nurse Christina received the big prize on the night, the prestigious Nurse of the Year award, after receiving greatest number of votes from the public.

The 24-year-old from Sneinton works at both the QMC and City Hospital and will have the honour of having one of the city’s trams named after her for twelve months.

Adrian Wallace, Chief Executive of NET concessionaire, Tramlink Nottingham said: “These awards provide us with an excellent opportunity to demonstrate our support for one of our key partners, NUH and, in particular, its staff.

“The QMC’s own dedicated tram stop is among the busiest on our network and it is superb to see the walkway link between the stop and the main hospital now under construction. This will make it even easier for patients, visitors and staff to access the hospital’s excellent healthcare facilities.

“We’d like to congratulate all the shortlisted candidates who have demonstrated their absolute commitment and dedication to their roles. Whilst these awards recognise the specific contributions of a few, their much broader purpose is to highlight the work of the many as well.”
