“Nurses’ Day” is an international event held annually on Florence Nightingale’s birthday (Saturday, 12th May 2018).
This is a fantastic way to show our support for nursing staff in our health and care services. It’s our chance to thank them for the care they provide to our families, friends, neighbours and colleagues. I encourage everyone to celebrate the remarkable work of nursing staff in Middlesbrough and across the UK.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ rule for nursing staff. They work in a variety of settings and have a diverse range of skills but what unites them all is their dedication, even in difficult circumstances, to delivering outstanding patient care.
Please use #ThisNurse to share stories of nurses dedication, those who went the extra mile to provide patient care and times which reminded them about the value of nursing in 2018.
