Nurses’ Day is a way of recognising the incredible work and positive difference our nurses and allied health professionals make on a daily basis and to acknowledge their sterling commitment to providing high quality patient care.

Andrea Handley, director of nursing and allied health professionals, said marking the Royal College of Nursing’s (RCN) Nurses’ Day is a hugely important date for us as an organisation.

“The past couple of years have been tough on everyone and so recognising our people and the high-quality care our nurses and allied health professionals provide to patients is so important, we want to thank our people for their hard work and dedication,” she said.

“We aligned the day with the RCN’s ‘Best of nursing’ theme, which has involved our nurses and allied health professionals sharing how they have showed exemplary care to a patient, colleague or a loved one.

“It was heart-warming to read the incredible and wholesome stories from our people, which evidenced going above and beyond, empathy and fantastic multidisciplinary team working. The stories undoubtedly demonstrate our people’s commitment and passion for providing the best possible care – not only to patients but each other as well.

“Also, we held a lunch and learn, which involved nurses and allied health professionals meeting with their leadership team and sharing best practice. It was fantastic to welcome back guest speaker Annabella Gloster, Health Education England’s north-west regional faculty lead for advancing practice, who shared an insight into her career to date, her current role, and future aspirations.”

gtd healthcare’s Nurses’ Day celebrations were inclusive of all nurses, dental nurses and allied health professionals with achievements from a variety of roles being recognised including those who have completed courses over the past year.
