PICTURED: Nichole McIntosh
THE REMARKABLE achievements of Nichole McIntosh have been recognised by the National Health Service Windrush 70th anniversary awards. The Jamaican nurse made it as a finalist at the ceremony, which celebrated the contributions of black and minority ethnic people in British society.
McIntosh graduated from the University of Technology (UTech) in St Andrew, J.A, however, she pursued her dreams of a career in nursing when she came to England. Since here, she has risen to a senior position at North Middlesex University Hospital in London.
The mum of two says she is “passionate about providing high-quality patient care and ensuring that staff care with culturally competent compassion in all areas of healthcare provision.”
McIntosh, who has resided in England for over 20 years, is heavily involved in research. Adding to her respectable knowledge of the field, she is currently doing doctoral studies in the hope of helping more patients at hospitals.
As a proud Jamaican and keen to give back to her community, she is thinking about approaching UTech to be an adjunct lecturer at the institution.
