International Day of the Nurse

Patient Care Stories

Today is International Day of the Nurse and whilst the coronavirus has taken centre stage, our nurses are still here, day in, day out, providing care and compassion to those who need it.

At a time where heightened concern and fear are adding to the anxiety around caring for loved ones, our nurses continue to provide a calmness and enable dignity. They do this now, and always.

So today we are celebrating them, and all nurses, by saying a huge thank you. And we’re also saying thank you to you, our wonderful supporters, for always being there for us when we need you. We truly are all in this together.

If your children would like to show your appreciation for our nurses, we have a colouring in pack for Year of the Nurse for you to download here. We'd love to see your children's pictures, please tag us in on social media, or email them to us at
