Chief executive and registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), Andrea Sutcliffe CBE, has celebrated The Year of the Nurse with The Fremantle Trust.
The former CQC chief inspector of adult social care joined a special event to honour nurses at Lewin House in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Andrea said: “It was a privilege and a pleasure to represent the Nursing and Midwifery Council at The Fremantle Trust’s celebration of the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.
“As I’ve said before, nurses in social care are skilled, compassionate and resourceful. They play such an important role in caring for and supporting people with a wide range of complex needs. It was great to meet some of the nursing team and see their enthusiasm and commitment.”
The NMC boss joined the Trust’s nurses and former nurses Peggy Jovanovic and Connie Jones, who are now residents with the care home provider.
Sara Livadeas, CEO of The Fremantle Trust said: “We love our nurses in social care and we couldn’t do our job without them. They work as part of a team looking after people 24/7. This was a great opportunity to bring people together and celebrate the contribution of both care home residents and nurse colleagues from across the Trust.”
