Thank You Nurses

  • Matt Farrah
    Nurses.co.uk Co-Founder

We decided that we need to show you, our audience of Nurses, how much the nation appreciates what you do. So we ran a campaign on Facebook and Instagram to ask the public to share their experiences of the Nursing care they’ve recently received. The response was overwhelming. We’ve posted some of our favourites here!

Play video: we loved the messages of support so much we created a little video of them

My thank you goes to the most loving nurses out in intensive care at Harefield Hospital for the love and support they gave me and my beautiful granddaughter, Courtney.

11 years ago I lost Michelle, my daughter. But the care and support never stopped. They supported me bringing up her daughter, my darling Courtney.

Sadly Courtney also died in January so is now with her mummy. Both suffered terribly with heart disease. Michelle suffered from a lot of blood clots. Courtney had a heart transplant in 2011.

These special nurses came to see her and helped but it started rejecting in July last year.

My baby girls are badly missed.

My family would like to give extra special Thank Yous to Jill Smith and Angie. The whole unit had the best nurses and doctors.

I would like to say a huge Thank you to our local team of district nurses from ilfracombe medical centre they are an amazing support to me, over the years ive seen new nurses join the team while others have moved on to new jobs others have retired but i am so very grateful for the care and kindness they give me constantly xxxxx

John Cliffe

The backbone of the NHS. I had major surgery 3 years ago, and still remember the kindness and professionalism of the nurses who looked after me, The named nurse who was supervising my case give me the confidence to get through the surgery. Before I went down for the pre-op she said "I will be waiting for you when you come round in the post-op unit", and when I woke up, there she was as promised, That was at the Royal Stoke Hospital , Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs for reference.

End note

I was handed the results of the campaign and was amazed at the number of comments and stories people had sent.

At first didn’t actually know what to do with it all.

I read, from top down, the comments from Facebook and have to say I found it a pretty moving experience.

Line after line of gratitude, respect, love and thanks. It became quite addictive. So much positivity!

So I hope any Nurses browsing this list of tributes from around the UK takes it for what it is: a communal THANK YOU to you as an individual and as part of a massive team.

I studied English before moving into publishing in the mid 90s. I co-founded Nurses.co.uk in 2008. I’m interested in providing a platform that gives a voice to nurses and those working in care and nursing. I'm fascinated by the career choices we make. In the case of those working in care I've discovered that there's a positive, life-affirming common theme: they do it for love not money.
