A NURSE at Queen’s Hospital in Burton has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award by the Nursing Times. Sarah Minns, a Urology Advanced Nurse Practitioner, is a finalist in the ‘Nurse of the Year’ category for her work raising awareness of prostate cancer.

Sarah Minns said: “It is a tremendous honour to be shortlisted – not just for myself but for the rest of the team as well. We are incredibly passionate about raising awareness of prostate cancer and hopefully this will help us to continue to encourage men to get checked out.”

Miss Jyoti Shah, added: “As a team, we are incredibly passionate about providing the best care and treatment for our patients as well and raising the profile of prostate cancer in the community.

“The support we have had, particularly from Burton Albion FC, has been terrific and the response from the community has been phenomenal.”
