Like many other trusts around the country, our staff came together on 12 May, to celebrate International Nurses Day – also commemorating the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.


This year’s theme was “the contribution of nursing” and to mark this special day, nurses from across the Partnership shared a message about the contributions they feel they make to the profession, highlights from their work and what they enjoy the most about being a nurse.


Our nursing staff are committed to supporting service users, carers, families and loved ones. I am sure you'll join me in thanking them all for the fantastic work they do every day. 

Chipo Sambani - Associate Director of Nursing - Enfield Division: "Being a nurse to me has been one of the most rewarding and proud achievements of my life. I have been pushed and stretched in many ways I never imagined my narrow brain would have been. Growing up, as the daughter, granddaughter and niece of nurses, I vowed to break the mould."

Ann Jumawan - Associate Director of Nursing – Hospital Division, C&I: "I’m incredibly proud to be a nurse. I’ve been a nurse for all of my working life, starting my training as a learning difficulty nurse at the age of 17."
