Queen's Nurse title for Sean

Sean Cemm, clinical nurse manager from Worthing, has been awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s Nurse by community nursing charity The Queen’s Nursing Institute.

The Queen’s Nurse title indicates a commitment to high standards of patient care, learning and leadership. Nurses who hold the title benefit from developmental workshops, bursaries, networking opportunities, and a shared professional identity.

Speaking about his award, Sean, said: “It was an honour to be awarded the title of Queen’s Nurse and be a member of the Queen’s nursing institute. It is a fabulous network of professionals who are passionate and committed to excellent patient care, promoting best practice and innovation.”

“I’m proud to be one of only 30 men in the UK to have been awarded the Queen’s Nurse title. Becoming a member of the Queen’s nursing institute allows me to become part of a fabulous network of professionals who are committed to the same values for learning and support and are committed to caring for people in their own homes.”

In Sean’s 16 years of nursing he has had a wide variety of roles both within the acute and community setting at Barts and the Royal London NHS Trust and locally at Sussex Community NHS Trust.

In his current role as Clinical Nurse Manager, Sean manages 10 teams of staff across coastal West Sussex covering specialisms such as diabetes, heart failure, bladder and bowel and respiratory services.

Susan Marshall, chief nurse at Sussex Community NHS Trust, said: “Congratulations to Sean for his success. His current role as clinical nurse manager is helping us to lead the way in caring for people with complex health and social care needs. This recognition of Sean’s nursing career and commitment is much deserved.”
