March 5, 2020
Chief executive and registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Andrea Sutcliffe joined nurses at The Fremantle Trust at Lewin House in Aylesbury, to celebrate the Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020.
Andrea thanked the nurses for the work they do in supporting older people in care homes.
“It was a privilege and a pleasure to represent the Nursing and Midwifery Council at the Fremantle Trust’s celebration of the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife,” said Ms Sutcliffe.
“As I’ve said before, nurses in social care are skilled, compassionate and resourceful. They play such an important role in caring for and supporting people with a wide range of complex needs. It was great to meet some of the nursing team and see their enthusiasm and commitment.
“It was also very special to talk with some of the Fremantle residents who were nurses and midwives in their working lives. Pam, Connie, Peggy and Jennifer had such interesting stories to tell. They are absolute stars!”
The Fremantle Trust’s chief executive Sara Livadeas said that, from April 2020 the organisation will pay the subscription fees of all its permanent nurses to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
“We love our nurses in social care and we couldn’t do our job without them,” said Ms Livadeas.
“They work as part of a team looking after people 24/7. This was a great opportunity to bring people together and celebrate the contribution of both care home residents and nurse colleagues from across the Trust.”
