International Nurses’ Day is celebrated on 12th May each year, the date which also marks the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

Our nurses mean a lot to us which is why we wanted to thank them even more so on International Nurses’ Day. They do a fantastic job caring for local people with life-limiting illnesses,  24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year – and we simply can’t thank them enough!

St Luke’s provides the highest standard of nursing care, compassion and support which is confirmed by feedback from patients, families and carers in letters, cards and through social media.

Providing care to local people

One of our patients, Bill from Crewe (pictured above), was admitted to St Luke’s for symptom control and cannot thank the nursing staff enough:

“They have all been simply fantastic. Their level of care is second to none and they have encouraged and supported me to the point where I am ready to go home now. St Luke’s and its nurses are very special,” said Bill.

Matron Wendy Wilson adds: “We are blessed to have such a committed and caring team, and their passion for nursing care demonstrates, so beautifully, the essence of nursing in practice.”

Make a donation

Help our nurses to provide support and care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families all year round by making a donation. For every £1 donated to St Luke’s 85p goes to patient care, while the remaining 15p helps us to raise another pound.

Thank you.
