Isle of Wight NHS Trust nurses celebrated International Nurses Day on Friday 11th May by inviting all patients, NHS staff and the public to join us in an open day held at St Mary’s Hospital to see some of the great work Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors are currently doing on theIsland.
More than 150 people attended the day and they range from different professions such as nurses, midwives, health visitors, doctors, managers, volunteers, support staff where they had the chance to speak to the Nursing Leadership team about any aspects of nursing, see a number of posters about nursing projects and have a cup of tea and a cup cake.
Carol Alstrom, Chief Nurse at Isle of Wight NHS Trust says: “The day was a great success and we were pleased so that so many people took the time to come and see the huge amount of work nurses are doing within the Isle of Wight NHS Trust to improve patient care”
