Celebrating Florence Nightingale
Guy’s and St Thomas’ launched its year of celebrations to mark Florence Nightingale’s bicentenary with special events for staff and patients.
This year marks the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale. The World Health Organization has declared it the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife in her honour.
Florence Nightingale set up her first nursing school at St Thomas’ in 1860. Throughout 2020, the Trust will be celebrating Florence’s legacy with activities and events honouring its nurses and midwives.
