Harry Galsote, who’s a ward manager on Amber B ward, attended the event on Tuesday, 14 November which aimed to give recognition to the contribution of international nurses and midwives in the UK.
The date was also King Charles birthday.
Harry had received an invite after he won IEN (internationally educated nurse) of the year at the Capital Nurse International Recruitment event in June.
He was joined at the royal reception by over 400 nurses and midwives from across the country.
Harry said: “I was honoured to represent our Trust and was so proud to be there. I never expected I would ever meet the King when starting my nursing career here in London.
“I thanked him for the opportunity and he said thank you to me for working for the NHS.”
Harry met His Majesty, as well as Dame Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer of England, at the event.
Chief Nurse Kathryn Halford, said: “Harry has made such a positive impact to nursing here at our Trust and deserved to celebrate the contribution of international nurses and midwives at the birthday reception for King Charles III.”Tags: Romford, Havering, BHRUT, Queen's Hospital
