Congratulations to Sandra Lawton


Here at JCN we would like to extend our congratulations to dermatology nurse consultant Sandra Lawton who was recently awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

Sandra gained her reputation in Nottingham’s hospitals and was given the honour for her services to nursing. She became only the second dermatology nursing consultant in the UK in 2002 and created the first liaison service between primary and secondary care. She has performed extensive research into eczema and is widely published on the subject.

Sandra began working in dermatology in 1987 and developed the first dermatology liaison sister post. She also lectures on advanced nursing and the nurse consultant's role.

In 2012 she was made a Fellow of the Queen's Nursing Institute.
