Year of the Nurse

2020 has been designated the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife by the World Health Organisation to recognise the contributions nurses make to society. This year has been chosen in honour of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.

Being a hospice, patient care is at the heart of everything we do, and none of that would be possible without our palliative care nurses. We’ve chosen to celebrate Year of the Nurse during Hospice Care Week (5-11 October) by sharing nursing stories from some of our hospice heroes.
