Help us celebrate our nurses
Nurses, health visitors and midwives make up the largest professional group employed in healthcare. Often seen as the public face of the NHS, they are there when needed most and change lives with their unique set of skills.
The role played by nurses has developed immeasurably over recent years with input into all areas of the health and care system. No matter where they are working, nurses are always at the heart of shaping the patient experience and delivering care.
On Friday 12 May, NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group will be celebrating the contribution that it’s nurses and ex-nurses have made to healthcare over the last few decade during nurses’ day 2017.
Rebecca Hulme, the CCG’s chief nurse, said: “Nurses' day is an opportunity to think about the amazing work our nurses past and present do and have done. We want to take time to celebrate and talk to people about why nursing is so important. It’s also an opportunity for us to say thank you to people who are often taken for granted.”
Plans for the day include a display of photographs of some of the nurses the CCG employs in uniform at the beginning of their careers, an invitation for staff to bring in memorabilia around nursing and a themed cake bake.
