Nurses Day 2019

Nurses Day 2019


Not one but TWO Florence Nightingales at Darent Valley Hospital! All week our Trust is hosting different events to celebrate International Nurses Day 2019 which is celebrated all around the world on Florence Nightingales birthday - 12th May.

Taking place we have information stands in the main foyer, a nurse selfie competition, a wishing tree, a cupcake competition, photo boards and an afternoon tea! Today in the foyer our Cancer Nurse Specialists pulled out all of the stops creating a wonderful display of the services they offer to our patients, the support groups they run, their extended roles and so much more. They also had a lovely display of nursing throughout the years, which was assisted by the Dartford and District Nurses League.
