International Nurses Day 2020

International Nurses Day 2020”

The CCG, which plans, buys and monitors the majority of healthcare services for more than 900,000 people living in the area, is appealing to people to sign-up as nurses in the district, as they have "never been more needed" as during the pandemic. "And of course we should pay tribute to our nurses and all health professionals every single day, but at the same time, tomorrow is a very, very important day and we have to celebrate our nurses", said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at a press conference in Geneva.

"I know how much the public's support has buoyed my colleagues during this testing time". International Nurse's Day was first celebrated by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) in the year 1965. Nurses are the backbone of our medical sector.

The day is observed on Florence Nightingale's birthday each year as a way to commemorate the expertise, the dedication and warmth of these health care workers.

Ruth May, chief nursing officer for England, said: "International Day of the Nurse is particularly special this year not just because we mark the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth, but because of the extraordinary work all those who have followed in her footsteps are doing in the fight against coronavirus".

The Florence Nightingale Museum at St Thomas' has made its bicentenary exhibition available online.
