The Scottish Adult Congenital Cardiac Service (SACCS) team at the NHS Golden Jubilee are finalists in the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Scottish Nurse of the Year Awards 2024.

They have been nominated within the Nursing Team of the Year category and praised for their commitment to offering excellent patient care alongside pioneering efforts in innovation and excellence in improving patient outcomes.

Anne Marie Cavanagh, executive nurse director at NHS Golden Jubilee, said: "We are immensely proud of the SACCS nursing team's well-deserved recognition as finalists in the RCN Scottish Nurse of the Year Awards.

"Their commitment to delivering exceptional patient care, fostering innovation, and driving continuous improvement serves as a beacon of inspiration for healthcare colleagues, patients and families."

The RCN's annual Scottish Nurse of the Year Awards serves to pay tribute to the exceptional care and dedication provided by nurses in various specialties and roles.
