Mrs Angela Knight Jackson, Deputy Director at the Nursing Professional Development for NHS England and NHS Improvement, was honoured in the Queen's Jubilee celebrations last week for her dedicated work at the NHS.
Angela, the wife of Pastor Richard Jackson (NEC), received royal honour in recognition of the incredible public service of nursing staff and other healthcare professionals from across the UK.
Reacting to the news, Angela said: "I am delighted to receive an MBE and be honoured. As a first-generation descendent of Windrush, I stand on the shoulders of giants. I've had an amazing journey working as a clinician, in academia, and as a senior leader for forty years. I want to thank my incredible colleagues, past and present, who have supported me.
"It is an absolute privilege to be part of the NHS and to have the opportunity to work with so many phenomenal and dedicated colleagues and serve humanity."
Our heartfelt congratulations to Angela for the recognition and her continuing sterling work with the NHS.
