I would like to start by thanking Janet Lewis, from University Hospital Wales in Cardiff, for writing for us in this issue. Janet was awarded the Society’s second Endocrine Nurse Award, in recognition of her incredible work in the development of equitable services for neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients. Janet’s determination led to the commissioning of a NET service in Wales. It demonstrates the positive impact nurses, in collaboration with patient support organisations, have in improving the care of patients.

So many nurses do outstanding work like Janet’s that often goes unrecognised. Please take time to nominate yourself or a colleague for the prestigious Endocrine Nurse Award. Click here for further details.

The Society for Endocrinology BES conference 2018 takes place on 19–21 November in Glasgow. We encourage all nurses to submit an abstract: the deadline is 25 June. This would enable you to disseminate your nursing practice and research to your peers, either by means of a poster or an oral presentation. If you think the preparation of an abstract looks like a major undertaking, remember that help and support are available from the Society for Endocrinology and your colleagues, including the Nurse Committee. Useful information can also be found on these pages.

Finally, don’t forget the Society for Endocrinology Endocrine Nurse Grant is available for nurses who wish to undertake an audit or piece of research. More information is provided in this issue to help you apply.

I wish you all a pleasant, and hopefully relaxing, summer.

Lisa Shepherd, Nurse Committee Chair
