Kate McConville has worked her way up from staff nurse to her current role as clinical service manager which covers several care homes. She uses her flexibility to report back to each home on best practice from each other, ensuring high standards are kept across the board.
Kate leads by example, using energy and enthusiasm to empower her team to highlight the importance of the nursing role. She recognises the unique nature of people and responds accordingly.
She believes that the values of Queen’s Nursing are an outline of her individual and professional values that she strives for each day. She would like to use the Queen’s Nurse title as a voice to develop the role of nurses in the care home sector.
Her development project is to improve and develop the mealtime experience in the care homes. Her project will involve staff development and reflections at each home to aid improving the mealtime experience for residents.

She is a very effective clinical lead and has extremely high standards which create a fantastic learning opportunity for junior staff.
