A community midwife in Glasgow has been selected to be part of the first group of Queen’s Nurses in 48 years.
Hilary Alba, a community midwife manager with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s Special Needs in Pregnancy (SNIPS) team, will now take part in the professional development programme run by The Queen’s Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS).
Once they have completed the development programme, the modern Queen’s Nurses will work to promote health improvement and delivery of services in the local community.
Hilary’s role is focused on providing community midwifery service to women who are asylum seekers, have experienced people trafficking or female genital mutilation.
She has been combining a managerial role in community midwifery with lecturing at the University of the West of Scotland.
