28 July 2020

Anthony Clarkson, NHS Blood and Transplant's Director of Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation, has been awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).

The RCN Awards celebrate the hard work and dedication of outstanding members, and those individuals who have made a significant contribution to the nursing profession.

The Fellowship Award recognises innovative individuals who have made an exceptional commitment to advancing the science and practice of nursing and the improvement of health and patient care.

Anthony said: “I believe being awarded the RCN Fellowship is the greatest honour any nurse can receive. When I was informed of my award I was simultaneously humbled by my nomination for, and acceptance to, the fellowship and proud to be recognised by our profession in this way.

“I have dedicated my career to striving to provide the best possible care for organ and tissue donors, their families and ultimately the patients who require an organ or tissue transplant, and have been fortunate to learn from and work with incredible colleagues along the way.”
