Andrea Cartwright, Nurse Consultant wins Nutrition Award

Andrea Cartwright, Consultant Nurse- Nutrition Support, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust , has been named the 2011/12 Enteral/Parenteral Nutrition Professional of the year. The prestigious CN Awards recognise the significant contribution organisations and individuals have made in the field of nutritional care. The CN Awards were voted for by the readers of the CN magazines, of which many of those are NNNG members. This makes the award so much more special because Andrea was voted for by professionals associated with nutrition.

Commenting on her award Andrea Cartwright said, “I would like to thank everybody who has voted for me, this is a little overwhelming! It is an honour to be nominated, and shortlisted, let alone to win an Award that is voted for by professional colleagues. Thank you very much”

Liz Evans, Chair of the NNNG said, ”I am delighted that Andrea has won this award, her commitment and dedication to improving the nutritional care of patients has been recognised and in the same year that she was promoted to Consultant Nurse status. I am sure all our members will join me in congratulating her on this achievement”
