1. Chief Nurse awarded MBE for services to nursing

  2. HOHC: Fiona Gilder, Advanced Kidney Nurse Specialist

    “Early in 2020 I was asked to write about my career as part of the preparations for International Year of the Nurse. Soon after, COVID-19 arrived and I was redeployed to an area within the Renal Unit to look after some of the sickest Covid patients outside of intensive care; I was redeployed for six months."

  3. HOHC: Lisa Dhibette (International Day of the Nurse)

    “Being a nurse is a privilege. After I had my son, I wanted to get back into work. A part-time healthcare assistant role came up at a residential home – and I just loved it! The last thing we can give someone in old age is their dignity and I felt honoured to be able to do that for them.  

  4. HOHC: Tendai Mwenye (International Day of the Nurse)

    “For me, what brought me into nursing was wanting to make a difference. When my children were in education, I started a voluntary job, taking people with learning disabilities for days out – to lunch, films, even the London Eye – and I really enjoyed it. It was suggested to me that I should go into nursing."

  5. HOHC: Tina Fitzgerald (International Day of the Nurse)

    “My mum is a nurse, and I spent a lot of time going to work with her when I was younger. She’s always had a passion and love for her patients – they admired her, I admire her. If I wrote a piece of work in primary school, it was always ‘I’m going to be a nurse.’
