Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

The di­rec­tor of care for vet­er­ans’char­ity Ersk­ine has been in­cluded in the list of 100 Out­stand­ing Nurses for 2018.

He has been added to the list by the so­cial me­dia nurs­ing com­mu­nity WeNurses.

Derek Bar­ron , who has led the care team in Ersk­ine since 2016, was nom­i­nated by his peers and is among the group of 100 nurses cel­e­brated for hav­ing made a dif­fer­ence in four ar­eas.

These are; pa­tient care at a pop­u­la­tion level; the un­der­stand­ing of best nurs­ing prac­tice for achiev­ing im­prove­ment; pub­lic un­der­stand­ing of nurs­ing and hav­ing pos­i­tively pro­moted nurs­ing.

The WeNurses com­mu­nity group in­vited its Twit­ter fol­low­ers to shine a light on some of the un­sung he­roes of nurs­ing.

All the nom­i­na­tions were then re­viewed and in­de­pen­dently scored from one to four on the ex­tent to which the cri­te­ria were met through the nom­i­na­tion, with the list ul­ti­mately whit­tled down to the fi­nal 100 names.

This ac­co­lade is yet an­other for Derek who, in 2017, was awarded one of the first Fel­low­ships of the Queen’s Nurs­ing In­sti­tute Scot­land (QNIS) for 50 years.

Derek said:“I am de­lighted to have been in­cluded in this list, firstly be­cause it is my peers who have nom­i­nated and recog­nised my con­tri­bu­tions but also be­cause of the other out­stand­ing nurses who are in­cluded in the list.

“I’d like to thank those who nom­i­nated me and the nurses who judged this list and in­cluded me in it”.
