Celebrating the amazing role of our nurses on #InternationalNursesDay Today (May 12) officially recognises the invaluable role of nurses. NHS Dumfries and Galloway is joining the celebrations across the world to share the incredible achievements and wonderful stories about how nurses have made a big difference in their patients’ lives that truly demonstrate the #BestOfNursing

Mark Kelly, NHS Dumfries and Galloway’s Interim Nurse Director, said: “I am really so proud of all of our nursing teams and the whole nursing family here in Dumfries and Galloway. “Each and every one of you deserve full credit for your amazing dedication, care, compassion and professionalism and for always going above and beyond. “As we emerge from the Pandemic, nurses play a vital role in our recovery to ensure that we continue to deliver safe, high-quality person-centred care. “Enjoy International Nurses day. It is your day to mark and acknowledge the invaluable contributions and difference you make to patients, families, colleagues, nursing across the whole of health and social care.

“Thank you all so much – you are truly amazing.”
