Supporting RCN and RCM Nursing and Midwifery Support Worker Day23/11/2022
We are delighted to support Nursing and Midwifery Support Worker Day which will be celebrated today (23 November 2022) across the UK.
This year we wish to acknowledge and celebrate our dedicated and compassionate Nursing and Midwifery Support Workers across the Western Trust area.
Neil Guckian, Chief Executive at the Western Trust paid tribute to the dedication and commitment of our Nursing and Midwifery Support Workers he said:
“Today is a wonderful opportunity on behalf of the Corporate Management Team to acknowledge and celebrate the essential and valuable roles of the nursing and midwifery support workers within our services. The Western Trust is delighted to celebrate the significant contribution that all of our nursing and midwifery support workers provide. They are such an important part of the Nursing and Midwifery Teams across the Western Trust and given their roles and close contact with patient and clients, play a key role essential part in the provision of high quality care and ensuring that our patients and clients have a positive experience in our hospitals and community care settings.
“Today showcases the varied and vital roles of nursing and midwifery support workers from across all of our services including Nursing Assistant, Senior Nursing Assistant and Maternity Support Workers from Acute, Community, Older People’s Services, Mental Health, Learning Disability, Physical Disability and Children’s and Maternity Services. It also acknowledges that many of these staff go on to complete pre-registration nurse education or professional social work qualifications and are an integral part of the health and social care system. This is an opportunity for us to recognise the often unsung heroes for their hard work, dedication and commitment and the high standard of care they provide to patients and clients. Thank you for everything you do and for your continued support to nursing and midwifery colleagues.”
