International Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020

This is our time: 2020 is the Year of the Nurse and Midwife

2020 is Florence Nightingale’s bicentennial year, designated by World Health Organisation as the first ever global Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Nurses and midwives make up the largest numbers of the NHS workforce.  They are highly skilled, multi-faceted professionals from a host of backgrounds that represent our diverse communities.  2020 is a time to reflect on these skills, the commitment and expert clinical care they bring, and the impact they make on the lives of so many.  This year is also an opportunity to say thank you to the professions; to showcase their diverse talents and expertise; and to promote nursing and midwifery as careers with a great deal to offer.

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.


As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so


From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
