Carole Knight

Community Nurse, Hughenden Valley Surgery, High Wycombe

Winner of the Community Nurse of the Year Award 2018

Working as a nurse in the vulnerable adults living independently advanced nursing team, Ms Knight improved the care of more than 400 of the community’s most vulnerable patients. For each patient, she saved an average of 10 GP consultations, three GP home visits, and just under one hospital admission each year. It means her surgery is now the lowest user of emergency and out of hours services within their CCG.
