Tarnia Lefevre
Disability equality champion
Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Tarnia was the winner of the Nursing Associate Trainee of the Year category in 2021, and has since completed her training to become a registered Nursing Associate. Tarnia has worked in the NHS for 21 years, and currently specialises in supporting Deaf people with mental health conditions. She has a passion for equality and inclusion in healthcare, and as the Disability Equality Champion with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, she works to improve service provision for patients, and staff well-being. Tarnia sees the greatest value of Nursing Associates being their experience in all four fields of nursing, and is excited to see how physical and mental healthcare can be more intrinsically linked through this position.
