It’s International Nurses Day and I can’t think of a better time to reflect on the crucial role these incredible women and men play in fighting the global pandemic we’re all living through. Nurses make up the largest section of healthcare workers worldwide; they are often the first faces we see when we arrive at hospital, and the people who check up on us if we’re ill at home. By providing both clinical and emotional support for patients, I’d argue that they’re the beating heart of our healthcare communities. And yet when I speak to nurse friends and ex colleagues these days, they say they’re more in need of support than ever before.
