We are proud to announce Katie Worley, Public Health Nursing Manager/Lead for SEND service for our Public Health Nursing 4 Slough service was awarded the prestigious Mary Seacole development award on the 30th October. The award was given for her project plan on the identification and assessment of maternal mental health for Punjabi speaking mothers within the Slough community. This research will be developed and carried out in 2018/19, aiming to raise awareness and offer a sound evidence-based approach in this area.
The Mary Seacole Leadership and Development Awards were first launched in 1994 in honour of Mary Seacole who made a significant contribution to nursing in the 19th century. The award is funded by Health Education England and administered jointly by the Royal College of Midwives, the Royal College of Nursing, Unison, and Unite.
Obi Amadi, Unite lead professional officer and awards steering group chair, said: “We congratulate our scholars and welcome the six new awardees into the Mary Seacole family. Their projects are current and cutting edge, culturally sensitive and will without a doubt impact on the healthcare outcomes of people from BME communities.”
This is a fantastic achievement and we are proud of the work carried out by Katie to achieve this, we look forward to seeing the research over the next year, helping to bring invaluable support to the community of Slough.
