Dedicated nurses and hospital staff enjoyed afternoon tea to commemorate the birth of Florence Nightingale as a part of International Nurses Day.
To celebrate the day on Monday last week the team at BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital, based in Sudbury Hill, Harrow, were treated to an afternoon of tea, cakes and treats.
Kay Ferris, regional director of the hospital, said: “International Nurses Day gives us all a chance to reflect on the career of Florence Nightingale and the vital role modern nurses play in the UK and international healthcare profession.
"The role of a nurse has changed dramatically with the advent of advances in science and technology but compassionate care is still the guiding principle of the nursing profession.
"Nursing is a profession that is driven by continual professional development to improve the knowledge of our staff and ultimately the care we provide to our patients."
