Bobby Milne - NZNO Service to Nursing and Midwifery Award recipient

Congratulations to our very own Bobby Milne, who was awarded the NZNO Service to Nursing and Midwifery Award for her commitment and dedication to improving the health outcomes for her patient population.

In her 42 years of full-time nursing, Bobby has devoted 31 years to reducing long term complications, and diabetes nursing on both a local and national level.

She first bought her passion and nursing talents to Whanganui after completing her nursing training in Brighton, England. 

In 1978 her first nursing role was on a surgical ward where limb amputations of patients with diabetes and peripheral vascular disease were commonplace.

Bobby: “I have worked for Middlemore since September 1990 and at the Whitiora Diabetes Service since January 1991 and it has become my passion to reduce amputations in our patient population.

“I feel very honoured to have been nominated and given this national service award in recognition of my contribution to nursing and midwifery.”

Bobby has educated, nurtured, and mentored many diabetes nurses over many years. 

Congratulations on your well-deserved award Bobby!
