Last updated: 13/10/2020
We’re delighted to announce that two members of staff at the Trust have become MBEs as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Dr Rebecca Hoskins, a consultant nurse, received her MBE for services to emergency nursing. Rebecca has a joint appointment with UWE and works at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, as well as the emergency departments at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and Weston General Hospital.
Alongside working clinically as a consultant nurse in our emergency departments, Rebecca is a senior lecturer in emergency care, the non-medical prescribing lead for the Trust, the Division of Medicine’s advanced practice lead, the professional lead for the emergency nurse practitioner and advanced clinical practitioner services at the BRI and children’s hospital, as well as being the children’s safeguarding lead at the BRI’s emergency department.
Talking about receiving her MBE and her work at the Trust, Rebecca said:
“This reflects the work of the whole emergency nursing team and I’m incredibly grateful for this honour.
“I am passionate about emergency nursing and the positive difference it can make to patients.
“It’s our job to be excellent problem solvers, and it’s a brilliant career. You start because of the adrenaline rush, but you keep at it for the chance it gives you to make things better for patients and to create order in the chaos.”
Dr Andrew McIndoe, a consultant anaesthetist, received his MBE in recognition of his services to medical simulation, electronic learning and assessment.
After becoming a consultant anaesthetist in 1998, Andrew also took on a role with the Bristol Medical Simulation Centre, teaching alongside his clinical work. He has co-run the simulation and e-learning training for anaesthetics to enormous success, with the Royal College of Anaesthetists ‘e-learning Anaesthesia’ project being made available to all NHS staff and anaesthetists globally.
In addition to his work at the Trust, Andrew has completed a 14 year term as an examiner for the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
Speaking about receiving his MBE, Andrew said:
“It is a great honour and very flattering to have been nominated, but I’m just very lucky to have had the support of some fantastic colleagues here in Bristol and my brilliant wife Sue behind me.”
