A student nurse from Keighley has been shortlisted for a coveted national award.

Sarah Broadhead-Crofts – who is studying at Bradford University – is nominated for an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award in a scholarship scheme run by the Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

Sarah, 39, and 28 other candidates will be interviewed next month by a panel of judges comprising leading nurses and midwives, including Professor Lesley Page, president of the Royal College of Midwives.

Award winners across five categories will each receive up to £2,000 to further their professional practice, either in this country or internationally, in conjunction with their university.

A trust spokesman said: “Previous winners of the scholarships have used these opportunities to study and work in India and Africa, and last year’s winner of the leadership award travelled to the Andes in Peru to help nurse families afflicted by poisoned water courses.”
