Here's a catch-up from our local NHS CCG about the International Nurse Day celebrations event locally.
NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS South Sefton CCG took part in a charity lunch break cake sale as part of International Nurses Day 2017 on Friday 12 May.
To mark the occasion, CCG staff showed their baking skills and brought in cakes for a charitable donation raising over £100 for the Royal College of Nurses (RCN) Foundation. This money will go towards supporting the needs of nurses, midwives and health care assistants as well as nursing students.
Debbie Fagan, chief nurse and quality officer at NHS Southport and Formby CCG and NHS South Sefton CCG, said: “I will have been a nurse for 28 years in June and having worked in both hospitals and in community settings before I started working in commissioning I always think about how it comes back to getting the quality of nursing right. This is why we work together with our nurses across Sefton on a regular basis and put our patients at the forefront of all we do.
