Public urged to celebrate Nurses' Day with 'thank you cards'

  • Comment

Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has encouraged members of the public to post thank you cards to its nurses on International Nurses’ Day.

“Cards could be thank you cards for particular nurses known to the sender or more general cards with words of encouragement and support for nurses they haven’t met,” said the trust in a statement.

“Cards could also share positive stories about past encounters with nurses to inspire recipients,” it added.

The cards were due to be handed out to nurses throughout 12 May.

“Our nurses work around the clock to deliver our patients the care they would expect for their own family,” said director of nursing Paula Shobbrook.

“We encouraged the public to take this opportunity to connect with one of our nurses by thanking them,” she said.
