Car­ing Pauline is named Nurse of the Year

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

THE NURSE of the year 2015 be­longs to Oban: but that won’t sur­prise to any­one who has come into con­tact with Pauline Jes­persen dur­ing her 37 years of ser­vice.

Mod­est as ever, Pauline says the award is not for her, but for the team of peo­ple she has worked with dur­ing her 26 years at Lorn Med­i­cal Cen­tre in Oban.

Speak­ing at the Scot­tish Health Awards in Ed­in­burgh, she said: ‘Win­ning the award has been a great priv­i­lege and peo­ple have been so kind.’ She told the au­di­ence that her job was one of the most in­ter­est­ing, based in the most amaz­ing town and work­ing with won­der­ful peo­ple.

Mrs Jes­persen is a prac­tice nurse part­ner (one of only a few nurses in this po­si­tion in Scot­land) and in­te­grated team leader who has sup­ported and trained nu­mer­ous com­mu­nity nurses and prac­tice staff.

Her award recog­nises her work to re­design ser­vices for pa­tients. She was also recog­nised for run­ning a high-per­form­ing med­i­cal prac­tice.
