Holy Cross Hospital in Haslemere marks International Nurses’ Day
HASLEMERE’S Holy Cross Hospital celebrated the contribution of nursing to the care and treatment of people with complex neurological conditions on International Nurses’ Day last Thursday (May 12).
Dr Ross White, chief executive of Holy Cross Hospital, said: “The message from this year’s International Nurses’ Day reflected how respecting the value of nursing can have a positive impact on health all around the world.
“At Holy Cross, the contribution of nursing is absolutely central to the care and rehabilitation of our patients and is one of the reasons behind our reputation as a centre of excellence.
“Holy Cross invests heavily in training and development for our staff, and for nurses that means we are able to provide opportunities for career progression that might not be so readily available elsewhere.”
Holy Cross Hospital provides specialist care to people with highly-complex needs resulting from brain injury or neurological conditions.
The hospital also runs a programme of courses and conferences open to professionals nationwide and internationally.
“Being part of an international community enables us to learn from clinicians and researchers from around the world while at the same time sharing our own discoveries, innovations and challenges,” said Dr White.
“Nursing is a key part of those educational activities alongside other areas of medicine and health care.”
