A hospital nurse has been appointed as president of a national organisation which works to enhance skills and knowledge in operating theatre departments.

Adrian Jones, an orthopaedic surgical care practitioner within the orthopaedic department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH), has been elected to the role of president of the Association for Perioperative Practice.

Speaking about the role, he said: 'It's a great honour to be elected to this role, representing the trust and supporting other operating theatre staff nationally, in Europe and worldwide for the next two years.'

Mr Jones began his theatre nursing career in 1982 while serving in the Queen Alexandra's Naval Nursing Service, when the Falklands War began.

In 1996, he returned to Norfolk to become one of the first orthopaedic surgical care practitioners in England at the hospital.
