Local Nurses Honoured For International Nurses’ Day

Coinciding with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, International Nurses Day, held in May, is a day to celebrate nurses and care staff around the world. Residents and staff at Southgate Beaumont care home in Southgate, were happy to get involved by hosting The NHS North Central London’s Nurses Forum and celebration.

In 2024, the theme for International Nurses’ Day is Our Nurses. Our Future.  The economic power of care. The International Council of Nurses is aiming to reshape perceptions of nursing, demonstrating how strategic investment in nursing can bring considerable economic and societal benefits.  International Nurses’ Day is a day to give thanks for the dedication of care givers everywhere, who go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care and support.

Beatrice Godfrey, General Manager at the home, said:
“At Southgate Beaumont we were delighted to be able to host the forum as they are invaluable to all those who attend. Thank you to all those involved for their hard work and those who attended, it was fantastic to be part of the forum. We felt it an extra privilege, as we were able to celebrate and honour nurses and the amazing work they do for International Nurses Day.”

Beatrice also said
“Our nurses and staff at Southgate Beaumont are hard-working, dedicated, and passionate about caring for others, and that compassion and commitment has shone through even more over the past year. They continue to work tirelessly, and I’m proud of the professionalism and duty of care they uphold.  All their efforts are focused on delivering the best possible care for our residents, so it’s nice to take this time to show our appreciation in return.  It is also lovely to celebrate our residents who were nurses themselves and thank them for all the hard work they did during their careers.”
