Tuesday 12 May marked the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale who famously set up her first nursing school at St Thomas' Hospital in 1860.
It was a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to all of our inspiring nurses and midwives, and everyone who supports them in their roles, particularly at this incredibly challenging time.
In this issue of the e-GiST, you can find out how we celebrated International Nurses' Day by projecting Florence Nightingale’s image onto Guy’s Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital and the Houses of Parliament. You can also read about a video call between our nurses, Evelina London Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, and The Countess of Wessex.
