NMC joins Welsh government to thank social care nurses
Read the open letter
Andrea Sutcliffe CBE, Chief Executive and Registrar for the Nursing and Midwifery Council, said:
“I am so pleased to join our partners in the Welsh Government in recognising the important work social care nurses do every day and offer our thanks for their continued dedication and professionalism during these uncertain times.
“As we’ve previously made clear, it’s vital that social care nurses get same level of recognition and respect as their colleagues in health care and we will continue to emphasise this.
“I know recent times have brought some of the greatest challenges many of us will have ever experienced. It is through the strength, skill and kindness of nurses working so hard every day across social care settings that we will be able to support the needs of people in the most vulnerable circumstances and get through this.
“I hope many of you across Wales and the UK will join me tonight in clapping a little extra hard as we think of our wonderful social care nurses.”
