Adferiad are proud to announce that the title of Queen’s Nurse has been awarded to Professor Euan Hails, Director of Clinical and Therapeutic Governance, following the Queen’s Nursing Institute Awards in December. With this award only extended to nursing professionals who demonstrate exceptional levels of commitment to nursing practice and patient care, we are delighted that Professor Euan Hails’ contributions to the field have been recognised and showcased on this level. 

This is not the first time that Professor Euan Hails, also a leading consultant nurse within the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, has been celebrated for his significant contributions on a national level. He was also included in the 2022 New Years Honour List, receiving an MBE for services to children and young people’s mental health in Wales after leading the development of the national Early Intervention Psychosis (EIP) services across Wales.

Recipients of this title are champions for learning and progression, benefitting from developmental workshops, bursaries, and networking opportunities to establish maintain consistently high standards practice across the country.

Queen’s Nurses serve as leaders and role models in community nursing, delivering high quality health care across the country. The application and assessment process to become a Queen’s Nurse is rigorous and requires clear commitment to improving care for patients, their families and carers. We look forward to working with Euan and all other new Queen’s Nurses who have received the title this year.’
