WE ARE NURSES: Some of the nursing staff at Tumut Hospital celebrating International Nurses and Midwives days

TUMUT Hospital nursing staff celebrated International Nurses Day on Friday with a barbecue lunch and a giant cake.

Organiser of the lunch, Robyn Harvey said, “we are enormously proud of our nurses and midwives at Tumut and this week we celebrated International Nurses and Midwives Days with the whole team taking a little time out to recognise the unwavering commitment our nurses and midwives have, working across our community to provide excellent healthcare.

“We have just under 60 nurses on our team who work tirelessly across various parts of our service – both within the hospital and community.

“All of the are extraordinary and today we are acknowledging them with a barbecue kindly supported by some of our local businesses,” Ms Harvey said.

International Nurses Day fell on Sunday, May 12 while International Midwives Day was celebrated on May 5.

International Day of the Midwife 2024’s theme was at the core of COP28 and strategies to improve the health and status of women.

Midwives perform a vital service in providing care and support to women and their families while pregnant, throughout labour and during the period after a baby’s birth.  

On May 5 midwives celebrated the role of midwives recognising in particular the importance of educating, training, regulating and licensing midwives to improve quality of care and to reduce maternal and newborn mortality.
