A Rotherham nurse’s dedication to improving the care available to people with respiratory conditions has been recognised as part of the Queen’s Nursing Institute awards.

Gail Miles, Respiratory Nurse Consultant at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, was awarded The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Award for Outstanding Service earlier this week at a ceremony in London.

The award was in particular recognition for her instrumental leadership in helping set up and run the only nurse-led model of care for respiratory inpatients and outpatients in Europe.

BreathingSpace, as it is known, provides treatment for people with respiratory disease including bronchiectasis pulmonary fibrosis chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. The model of care at BreathingSpace promotes patient self-management and participation, particularly with exercise as well as more conventional management.

On receiving the award, Gail said: “I am extremely honoured to receive this award and consider this to be on behalf of all the staff who have contributed to the success of BreathingSpace over the last 10 years.”

Earlier this year BreathingSpace celebrated its 10th anniversary by holding a special event attended by patients, members of staff and partners where they had the opportunity to reminisce over the past decade.

As well as highlighting the amazing work of nurses from across the country, the Queen’s Nursing Institute used this year’s awards to celebrate 130 years since its foundation by Queen Victoria.
