Nurses and Midwives celebrate Wisdom and Knowledge

The Annual Nursing and Midwifery conference takes place on Tuesday 3rd October. In recognition of the formation of the new Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, nurses and midwives across all of our services will celebrate the transfer of wisdom and knowledge into the new organisation.

A symbolic Florence Nightingale lamp will journey through each hospital and our community services to be delivered at the start of the conference entitled 'Beginnings, endingsā€¦and all things in between'.

Chief Nurse Professor Cheryl Lenney said:  "As we bring together the great historical institutions that make up our foundation Trusts, we must remember that it is not buildings that define what we do as nurses and midwives, but you, who work tirelessly across all our hospitals and community services."

The lamp will start its journey on Tuesday 19th September at Trafford Hospital, a fitting acknowledgement to the birthplace of the NHS.  This will pay tribute to all our nurses and midwives dedicated to delivering the best possible care to patients and their families, and will symbolise the opportunities to develop the wisdom and knowledge of the professions for the future.
