International Nurses’ Day

International Nurses’ Day takes place on 12 May and focuses on what it means to be a nurse and how our nurses have led patient care, particularly through the past few challenging years.

We want to say huge thank you to all our nurses across the organisation. They have continued to provide outstanding care to our patients, through very difficult circumstances and we are extremely grateful to them. We could not have done it without them.

Below you will find stories about our fantastic nurses and some comments from our staff who work with nurses and what it means to them.

Trust Team Leader wins Cavell Star Award

We are very proud of Danielle Thompson, our Team Leader for Cardio-Respiratory Services, North Notts, who has won a Cavell Star Award.

An inspiring national awards programme, Cavell Star Awards are given to nurses, midwives, nursing associates and healthcare assistants who shine bright and show exceptional care to one of three groups of people, their colleagues, their patients or patients’ families.

Danielle was nominated by staff from the Cardio-Respiratory Bassetlaw team, which is part of the North Notts Team. The team nominated Danielle as she shines bright and shows exceptional care for patients, their families, and the team. She is the person that puts her arm around the whole team to support them.

Danielle said: “I feel overwhelmed and amazed that they nominated me, let alone receiving one. For me personally it is a huge achievement, and I am very proud of it. Definitely one of the highlights in my nursing career”

Becky Sutton, Executive Director of Community Health Services said:

“Congratulations to Danielle on this fantastic achievement. She is very highly thought of by her team for the exceptional care she provides and the support she provides the team. She is thoroughly deserving of this award. Well done Danielle.”
