Local hospitals celebrate International Nurses Day

International Nurses Day

Staff at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust have been celebrating nurses across all of our hospitals as part of International Nurses Day.

To celebrate various activities took place across both Peterborough City and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals. Displays at both hospitals showcased old nurses uniforms dating from 1966 and also had collections of current staff photos. The photos taken showed nurses holding up signs highlighting a bit about them. This was to illustrate the diverse range of nursing roles fulfilled across the Trust. Thank you cards, signed by the Board of Directors, were given out and a cake sale raised £584, which will go towards the Trusts student and educator awards.


Joanne Bennis, Chief Nurse, at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “International Nurses Day is our chance to celebrate the diversity and skills of nursing roles and to recognise the contribution that nurses make to societies around the world. The date coincides with Florence Nightingale’s birthday on 12 May and we wanted to celebrate the varied roles of nurses within our Trust. Their hard work and skills make such big contribution and we want to thank them for that.”
