Neonatal nurse from Saint Mary’s Hospital awarded Churchill Fellowship

Roxy Afzal, a neonatal intensive care nurse from Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship to travel to Canada and the USA to explore best practices to support UK health professionals to confidently and competently offer the option of organ donation to families of end-of-life babies.

The prestigious Churchill Fellowships offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel the world and research new ideas for nursing and allied health professions. Upon their return, the Fellows use their findings from overseas to inspire positive change in the UK.

Roxy says:


Roxy is amongst 150 people who were selected this year from almost 1,800 applicants to win a Churchill Fellowship to research issues across a range of sectors.
