London nurse up for prestigious UK award for digital platform improving access to fertility treatment
A nurse entrepreneur who has sped up access to fertility treatment with their digital platform has been shortlisted for one of the profession’s top accolades.
Andreia Trigo, co-founder of Enhanced Fertility, has been selected from 920 entries as finalists in the FuturU-sponsored Digital Innovation category of the RCN Nursing Awards 2023.
Ms. Trigo will find out if she has won at a ceremony on Friday 10 November at Liverpool Cathedral. The overall RCN Nurse of the Year 2023, selected from all the category winners, will also be announced at the event.
Nurse consultant and entrepreneur Ms Trigo led the development of the digital platform to allow healthcare professionals to request tests for patients ahead of fertility treatment. It also gives them access to patients’ health information to better assess them remotely for diagnosis and decision-making.
Ms Trigo oversaw the project, as well as defining key clinical protocols. Patients using the platform are now able to complete affordable fertility testing three times faster than standard practice. This means they can start treatment sooner, which has increased the likelihood of live birth.
The RCN Nursing Awards will this year be held alongside the inaugural Nursing Live, a new and dynamic event for everyone who works in nursing. Hosted over two days (November 10th-11th) at the ACC complex in Liverpool, the event will focus on both the professional and personal development of nurses at every stage of their careers and will be the first event of its kind for the sector.
