Birmingham Children’s Hospital celebrates International Nurses’ Day

  • Comment

A poem and “best dressed” ward competition, live music and free beauty sessions were among the activities Birmingham Children’s Hospital put on to thank its dedicated staff as part of the International Nurses’ Day celebrations.

Patients at the hospital and pupils at the on-site James Brindley School also expressed their gratitude by creating a colourful display that will feature in the hospital all week, while the Royal College of Nursing had a stall in the hospital which handed out free gifts.

Chief nursing officer Michelle McLoughlin gave a special presentation that outlined milestone developments in nursing. Peter Blythin, director of nursing and workforce development at NHS West Midlands, was also in attendance.

Celebrated on 12 May every year - the birthday of Florence Nightingale - National Nurses’ Day is all about celebrating and recognising nurses’ hard work.

McLoughlin said: “Birmingham Children’s Hospital is proud to be celebrating this and we had a day of activities to say thanks to all of our nurses for their continuing hard work.”
