Making a mark on International Nurses Day, we celebrated our fabulous nursing and midwifery staff, by conducting our very own special event on the 12th May - ‘Pride in Nursing and Midwifery Day’ - with over 140 people attending.
Chief Nurse, Heather Caudle said: “As usual, the day was a chance for all our nursing and midwifery colleagues to come together to celebrate our wonderful achievements during the past year. Our theme this year was ‘Nursing is Diversity’, celebrating our diverse cultural and career journeys to becoming nurses and midwifes. This really makes our Trust who we are, proving that at the heart of all nurses and midwives, no matter what their background; they are united in their compassion for care. The roles of nursing and midwifery are truly diverse and this fact, in addition to the amazing opportunities we have for development, means we are able to be resilient when meeting different challenges, working with different disciplines or setting more stretching goals.”
Prestigious and influential nurses attended the event, including Chief Nursing Officer at NHS England, Jane Cummings, and Deputy Director of Nursing at Public Health England (PHE), Joanne Bosanquet MBE.
