Celebrating our staff at the time of Florence Nightingale’s birthday

1:42 pm  //  21st May 2019

International Nurses Day (12 May), International Midwives Day (5 May) and National Operating Department Practitioners Day (14 May) have given staff at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals NHS Trust plenty to celebrate over the last week.

Events were held at both hospitals to thank ALL staff for the incredible amount of dedication, commitment, empathy and professionalism that goes into each and every day.

Staff were able to drop into small parties to pick up lunch and a thank you cup cake and enjoy music from Radio Heartbeat, the hospital radio station. Raffle prize donations from Southport Pleasureland helped to raise funds for the hospital charity, which enabled the celebratory thank you events.

Juliette Cosgrove, Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Therapies explains: “Nurses, midwives and ODPs are part of the lifeblood of our Trust and this is the perfect time of year to thank them all for their work. But we strongly believe that all staff play an equal role here, so whether they are fixing broken bones or a burst pipe, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone.

“Happy nurses, midwives and ODPs day to everyone, you are all amazing and we are SO Proud of the work done here every day.”
