A local nurse has been awarded the highest honour available to members of the Royal College of Nursing for her work to advance education and promote equality, diversity and inclusion.
Dr Moyra Journeaux, a registered nurse and postgraduate programme manager at the General Hospital’s Harvey Besterman Education Centre, has been recognised with an ‘Award of Merit’ for her exceptional contribution to the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
She was awarded in particular for the work done in roles on the Perioperative Forum Steering Committee and the Education Forum Steering Committee, and as a Scientific Conference Planning Committee member.
The 'Award of Merit' is the highest honour bestowed to RCN members for service to the college itself.

Ellen McNicholas, RCN South East Regional Director, congratulated Dr Journeaux, saying: "Colleagues who nominated Moyra said she has the admiration and respect of her peers and has made a vital impact on the advancement of nursing education, policy, and practice."
"She was also said to have made an outstanding contribution to the promotion of equality, diversity and inclusion in her leadership and collaboration across the RCN Neurodiversity Task and Finish Working Group."
Dr Journeaux said she was "overwhelmed" and "so proud" to receive the award, which she was not expecting.
She added: "It is a privilege to have had the opportunity to be involved with RCN work over the years. I have had opportunities to be involved in work streams that have supported and developed nurses in practice and education. This award is because of the remarkable individuals, both RCN members and staff, who I have worked alongside."
