Royal College of Nursing, Black History Month Making a Difference Award goes to Mimi Wiredu!

Published: 05/10/2021

Mimi Wiredu, a nurse on Rosemary Ward at our Juniper site, has won the Royal College of Nursing, Black History Month Making a Difference Award.   Black History Month and the awards themselves present the Royal College of Nursing and NHS organisations a unique opportunity to recognise and reward nursing staff who have made a real difference to patients and/or colleagues.

The panel said of Mimi’s nomination, “It was a pleasure to hear about your contribution. Your nomination was for showing a passion for learning and acting as a great role model for your peers of all cultures.  Jacky and Bethany told us you’d eloquently encouraged many from your local college to consider enrolling as a nurse as part of an International Nurses Day initiative to encourage young people to consider a career in nursing.”

The judging panel noted that Mimi is a positive influence in the workplace who has made a difference by engaging with a local college to recruit prospective nursing students from diverse backgrounds.

Sincere congratulations to Mimi on her achievements – we are proud to have her as part of Team BSMHFT.
