Photo exhibition celebrates International Nurses’ Day

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and the Cavell Nurses’ Trust are joining forces to celebrate International Nurses’ Day on Thursday 12 May. The hospital, based in Birmingham, is hosting a photographic exhibition that includes pictures of nurses at work and play, to give a flavour of how carrying out this critical role affects their day-to-day lives.

Redditch-based charity Cavell Nurses’ Trust, which gives money to support nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants experiencing financial or personal hardship, has supported The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in putting on the exhibition and the charity’s chairman, Simon Knighton, is delighted with the results. ‘The exhibition shows us the person behind the professional,’ he said. ‘It’s our privilege to be here for nurses when they’re facing hardship so, if possible, they can get back to the job and the life they love. This is a great way to celebrate these amazing nurses on International Nurses’ Day.’

The exhibition runs from Thursday 12 May to Friday 20 May in the outpatients’ department of The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital on Bristol Road South and is open to the public.

Garry Marsh, director of nursing and governance at the hospital is keen for people to visit.

‘Our nurses who’ve taken part in the photography project have really enjoyed it and we’d love people to pop down to the glass corridor in the outpatients’ department and have a look,’ he said. ‘We’re always keen to celebrate our staff and the photography exhibition is a great way to do this.’
