THIS is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, a chance to showcase and celebrate our nursing and midwifery colleagues at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT).

It is Florence Nightingale’s bicentennial year, designated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the first ever global Year of the Nurse and Midwife. Nurses and midwives make up the largest numbers of the NHS workforce.

PAH is starting this year of celebration at PAHT by encouraging nurses and midwives who may be interested in joining our amazing people to apply – you can see our current vacancies via our website (www.pah.nhs.uk) and at http://pah.healthjobsuk.com/.

Sharon McNally, director of nursing, midwifery, and Allied Health Professionals, (pictured, second from right) said: “I have had the privilege to work as a nurse for more than 30 years, and I am committed to providing high quality, compassionate care.

“I was inspired to become a nurse to make a difference and I have enjoyed a fantastic, rewarding career.

“I joined PAHT in October 2018 and I have been delighted to work alongside our dedicated nurses and midwives. In my role, I give professional leadership for nurses, midwifes and Allied Health Professionals, alongside being the executive director with responsibility for quality, infection control, mental health and safeguarding.  

“We will be focusing on our fabulous nurses and midwives throughout 2020 – please join us in giving your thanks to our amazing people.”

Jacqui Featherstone, associate director of nursing and midwifery (pictured right), added: “I trained as a nurse at Westminster Hospital in London in 1984 and decided to undertake the shortened midwifery course at The Princess Alexandra Hospital in 1986 – and I have never looked back since.

“I have stayed working at The Princess Alexandra Hospital due to the opportunities that I have been so fortunate to have had. I am dedicated to supporting our children, women, their partners and families with high quality care.

“I began my role as the associate director of nursing and midwifery at PAHT in 2012, contributing to the development of midwifery and nursing practice across the trust.

“Our wonderful nurses and midwives are so appreciative to hear words of thanks and support and we are excited to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife with them.”
