This week is National Nursing Week (7 to 11 May) and we’re saying ‘thank you’ to our nurses, midwives and student nurses for everything they do for their patients here at Nottingham’s hospitals.
Celebrations have included a Nurses Tea Party with an international theme at the City Hospital, for International Nurses Day (10 May). The Charity’s Chief Executive Barbara Cathcart, and the Trust’s Chief Nurse Mandie Sunderland, met with nurses at the tea party to thank them for all they do. The pair went on to deliver a cake to surprised nurses on the Burns Unit, with more wards due to receive their deliveries tomorrow.
Today also saw some special cake deliveries to nurses at the Queen’s Medical Centre, in partnership with NET Trams. Two large celebration cakes earlier set off from a secret bakery storage location and travelled via tram to QMC, where staff from Nottingham Hospitals Charity and NET Trams surprised unsuspecting nurses attending a nursing forum being held there.
The celebration cakes were funded by Nottingham Hospitals Charity, to reflect our gratitude for the care provided by nurses, midwives and student nurses at Nottingham’s hospitals.
Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “This is an incredibly important opportunity to recognise the care and dedication of our nurses and midwives here in Nottingham and to encourage them to sit down for five minutes and feel thanked with a lovely slice of cake.”
