Maya Aquino-Guerrero who works as part of our extensive clinical team, as a Clinical Specialist Lead was recently nominated for an award at the British Journal of Nursing Awards 2024.

The awards are dedicated to recognising and applauding the hard work and unwavering commitment of NHS teams and colleagues and acknowledging the significant impact they have made on the lives of patients.

Maya was a finalist in the category for Vascular Access Nurse of the Year and was presented the silver award. The winners were announced at an esteemed annual event, which was held on 22 March 2024, at the illustrious BMA House in London. Maya is recognised as a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) and is passionate about patient safety and promotion of best evidence-based practices.

She has more than two decades of clinical proficiency, half of this dedicated to the field of vascular access and IV therapy. She continues to pursue clinical and academic excellence and is currently undertaking her Post Graduate studies as a ‘Reader of Patient Safety’ at the University of Oxford.

She is known to her peers as the first Filipina to have a role in a national arena with the Department of Health & Social Care and for the last six years, at NHS Supply Chain. She is also behind a series of successful Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) grants for FNA UK.

I am truly honoured and delighted to have been nominated. This recognition serves as a significant motivator, and it is gratifying to know that the commitment to patient safety embedded in the work that we do here at NHS Supply Chain has not gone unnoticed. Taking the silver home is the cherry on the cake!
