​Prince Adoe an internationally educated nurse who currently helps the people of Colchester has been shortlisted for a global health award.

Mr Adoe currently works in the Gosfield Ward, at The Lakes Mental Health Unit previously moving from Ghana to work at Essex Partnership University Trust in June 2022. He has been nominated for the Rising Star Award at this year’s Zenith Health’s Global Health Awards.

The awards promote and encourage healthcare professionals to share, collaborate and celebrate excellence in healthcare nationwide. The Rising Star Awards recognises up-and-coming healthcare professionals who demonstrate qualities of a prosperous future and exhibit evidence of continuous growth and development throughout their roles.

Mr Adoe has developed a training programme for mental health nurses to improve and enhance their skill level and knowledge so all NHS staff are able to ensure patients receive customised care for all their health needs.

Prince began his programme during his time on the Resilience, Intelligence, Strength, and Excellence programme, also known as (RISE).

The RISE programme aims to spur a paradigm shift in the way the world thinks about how to overcome the learning crisis by demonstrating and focusing on the importance of education systems. It focuses on talent within Black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds. It is a global, collaborative enterprise with teams drawn from many different organisations, sectors, and regions such as India, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Indonesia and many more.

Prince said “Being nominated for this award is an incredible honour. Knowing that my hard work and dedication have been recognised in this way is truly humbling and I would like to thank the RISE leadership programme and anyone who has been instrumental in my growth. “My physical health project was aimed at training staff in the management of physical health conditions.
