The Chief Nursing Officer of The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust says she is "humbled" to be awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.
Cheryl Etches, who is from Wombourne in Staffordshire, has been in the role at the Trust for seven years. The Trust says she has been "instrumental" in turning around the hospital in Wolverhampton to become one of the highest performing NHS Trusts in the West Midlands and nationally.
“I am very humbled to accept this honour and feel it recognises the efforts of many staff at The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust who work tirelessly to deliver good quality care to the people who we serve.”
The artistic director of the RSC is among many from the Midlands who have been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
