A committed nurse from The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) attended a royal reception hosted by His Majesty The King on 14 November.
The reception, that took place at Buckingham Palace, was an opportunity to celebrate the contribution of nurses and midwives working in the UK’s health and social care sector.
Kristle Bravo, international nurse educator and manager at PAHT, was nominated to attend the reception by her senior nursing management team.
Giuseppe Labriola, deputy chief nurse at PAHT, said: “We were delighted to receive a request to nominate one of our amazing nurses to attend the celebration reception at Buckingham Palace.
“The aim of the reception was not only to thank and recognise the contribution of nurses and midwives, but also our international nursing and midwifery colleagues who have joined the NHS to make a real difference.
“When we were asked to nominate a nurse to attend the reception, Kristle immediately came to mind because of the amazing work that Kristle and her team does to support our international nurses joining the hospital and settling into working life.
“Congratulations Kristle and thank you for all that you do for our people and patients. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed the special event at Buckingham Palace.”
Kristle said: “I am absolutely thrilled and deeply honoured to have been nominated for such a prestigious invitation to Buckingham Palace. This was an extraordinary opportunity, it's a dream come true, and I can't thank the senior nursing management team enough for this incredible privilege.”
