International Nurses’ Day takes place on 12 May and celebrates the contribution that nurses make to society around the world on 12 May every year, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
We’re celebrating all of our 3018 nurses and thank each and every one for their commitment and dedication. They do an amazing job delivering outstanding care to our patients. Their resilience and commitment is incredible.
