ArtCare at our District Hospital wants to hear stories from local healthcare staff for prosperity for years to come.

The project's part of the celebrations for International Year of the Nurse and Midwife during 2020 and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.

Given the iconic nurse's connections to Salisbury and the surrounding area, ArtCare is looking to gather the experiences of nurses and midwives on a project called 'I Am Florence'.

Jayne Sheppard, Matron at Salisbury District Hospital said:

"Nurses have played a pivotal role throughout the history of healthcare and today are working on the frontline to provide compassionate and expert care for patients during a global pandemic. The 'I Am Florence' initiative is a lovely way to capture the experience of nurses and midwives, both past and present, during such unprecedented times."


This is open to any nurse or midwife, including students and retired staff, with a chance to tell your story.

The project's looking for stories about who inspired you, what you've achieved, what you love about nursing and lessons you've learned from the profession.

You can be anonymous if you want to, and all the comments will then go into ArtCare's history collection for generations to come.

The survey to take part is available online.
