Friday 12th May - Florence Nightingale's birthday - is Nurses' Day.

The Royal College of Nursing is marking the day with a special online documentary featuring nurses at work at Circle Nottingham, selected from hospitals across the country for this piece of film-making.

In the days leading to and following on Nurses’ Day, Circle is releasing on our social media a series of video interviews and photo portraits of Circle Nottingham nurses, reflecting on their experience working at Circle and what makes Circle a unique healthcare provider. 

The keyword for Nurses' Day is #nurseheroes

Circle’s Director of Nursing, Lisa Carroll, who qualified as a nurse in 1990 and was one of the first consultant nurses in acute medicine in the UK says: “I am on a daily basis inspired and humbled by the care, compassion and dedication shown by everyone in Circle. To all our nurses: I am immensely proud to be your Director of Nursing. You are all nurse heroes, so please enjoy the celebrations today and take a few minutes to reflect on your amazing achievements”.

Circle CEO Paolo Pieri says: “Across our sites, we have hundreds of nurse heroes, who every day put our Credo into action – exceeding our patients’ expectations, striving to continuously improve the quality of care we offer, and recognising that 'good enough' never is. So a big thank you from all our partners to our nurses for the hard work that they put in daily.”

The Royal College of Nursing is encouraging people to nominate a nurse hero who you work alongside, which you can do on the RCN website,
