Doncaster mum receives top nursing award

A Doncaster mum has received the title of Queen’s Nurse, a top nursing award, for her ‘outstanding contribution to community nursing’, the Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) announced.

Samantha Butcher, a 46-year-old mother of three from Balby, has worked with the trust in numerous roles across Doncaster for the past 24 years.

According to the trust, she is currently RDaSH’s Service Manager for Planned Community Nursing, leading a team of 175 people.

Sam was one of just 318 nurses across the nation to be awarded the top nursing award in 2021.

She was rewarded for her continuous display of commitment to patient care and the nursing practice.

After winning the top nursing award, Sam told the RDaSH team: “I always wanted to be a community nurse instead of working in a hospital and it has been really rewarding to care for patients in their own homes, rather than on a ward.

“No two days are ever the same.

“Being able to look after someone, often surrounded by their family at their last stage of life, is a privilege and something I’m really passionate about.”

RDaSH Chief Executive Kathryn Singh shared her congratulations with Sam in response to her winning the top nursing award.

She said: “Congratulations to Sam on this well-deserved award.

“I never fail to be impressed by the skill, commitment and passion of our nurses and Sam personifies those star qualities so well.”
