A service of thanksgiving will be held at Norwich Cathedral to celebrate the contribution of nurses and healthcare staff.

Hosted by the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) the evening celebration will take place in the Cathedral Nave from 7.30pm, on Thursday, May 11.

It will see health service staff from across the region join together to acknowledge the positive difference they make to their communities.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the service, which will start with a procession of healthcare staff from services across the county. Music will be provided by the NNUH hospital choir and the Norwich Salvation Army band.

National and regional nursing leaders and representatives will be present at the event, where NNUH Director of Nursing Emma McKay and colleagues will be sharing their thoughts.

Ms McKay said: “We hope that the local community will join us to celebrate and reflect on the positive impact that nurses and the wider NHS makes to lives across Norfolk every day. I’m very proud to be a nurse and am constantly reminded in my daily role that the dedication and expertise of my colleagues changes lives for the better.”

Mark Davies, NNUH Chief Executive added: “This is a wonderful opportunity to give recognition to those teams and individuals we know would be there to help us in our hour of need. We are delighted share this event with our healthcare colleagues, helping us to reflect on our role in supporting patients, their families and carers.”
