Sophie Robson, a Nurse in the Assessment Unit of the Nottingham Children’s Hospital was named overall winner at the NET-sponsored Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards last night (October 14th).

Sophie came out top in a public vote following a glowing nomination by the mother of one of her patients.

As with previous years, Sophie’s name is now set to replace that of last year’s winner, Luisa Avanzado, on the side of one of the city’s trams.

Adrian Wallace, chief executive at NET concessionaire Tramlink Nottingham, said: "A huge well done to Sophie on being named Nurse of the Year, she’s obviously an incredibly deserving winner and received an overwhelming number of votes.”

"We look forward to welcoming Sophie to the NET depot to see her name unveiled on the side of a tram, a high-profile symbol of the city’s appreciation of the dedication and professionalism shown by all our nursing professionals."
