DBE for services to nursing and wound care17th June 2013
Professor Nicky Cullum, from the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, The University of Manchester has been made a Dame for her services to nursing research and wound care.
She said: “I’m overwhelmed, shocked and surprised. This isn’t just my work and I want to thank all the people I have collaborated with to produce the research. I look at conditions like leg ulcers and pressure ulcers to see how to improve treatments. It’s the less glamorous side of nursing but it affects thousands of patients and is something nurses have to treat and deal with every day.
“I’ve worked with hundreds of community nurses who, as well as doing their demanding day jobs, have helped me to gather research with no extra pay or recognition. This honour is as much for those nurses and researchers who have worked on the research as it is for me.”
