RCN Nurse of the Year 2017

RCN Nurse of the Year 2017

Melanie Davies from Wales has worked tirelessly to improve the care of people with learning disabilities in her hospital and health board – Morriston Hospital, Swansea, part of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

After a watchdog investigation into the death of a man with learning disabilities at her hospital labelled the care he had received “dire”, Melanie took action.
