An occupational health specialist at Glasgow Homeopathy Hospital has won a
lifetime achievement award from the RCN.
Frances Baker was presented with the bronze trophy, which recognised her
outstanding contribution to occupational health nursing, education and
practice, at the annual RCN Scotland conference last month.
"I am delighted the RCN decided to give this award to someone in
occupational health," she said.
Baker has been involved in the occupational health arena for the past four
decades. She was the first president of the Federation of Occupational Health
Nurses in the European Union between 1994 and 1999.
She began her career as a colliery nursing sister in 1959, and is now
honorary clinical and academic nursing adviser and OH medicine specialist at
Glasgow Homeopathy Hospital.
