It always gives me great pleasure sharing nurses’ achievements with the endocrine community and I would like to congratulate two nurses in this autumn’s edition of the Nurses’ News.

First, I would like to congratulate Julie Lynch, who is our first Endocrine Nurse Grant awardee. Her research on ‘Assessing the impact of residual adrenal function on adrenal crises and infections: can we direct educational resources?’ will add to evidence in this area and inform practice. If you are interested in becoming our second awardee and in applying for this grant, further details can be found in the bottom panel to the left.

Second, I would like to congratulate Louise Breen, who works as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust on her wonderful achievement of receiving a ‘Nightingale Nurse Award’. In her article, Louise explains how she came to be awarded such a prestigious medal and how her work with the Society for Endocrinology played an important role in obtaining this.

These are two examples of how endocrine nurses highlight their important work. We have a number of vacancies on our Nurse Committee that commence January 2019. These are rewarding positions that allow you to be the voice of endocrine nurses, developing the role and training and development. If you are considering applying, see top left for further details.

I look forward to seeing you all in November in Glasgow at SfE BES 2018.

Best wishes

Lisa Shepherd, Nurse Committee Chair
