A message from Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer for England

These reflections capture the spirit of our nursing and midwifery workforce and our NHS people. 2020, the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, was not the year we expected – but it’s certainly been a year in which nurses and midwives have shone, locally nationally and globally. We have been front and centre of the pandemic response.

“This publication is testament to the professionalism, skills and expertise we have seen. I’m very proud of our professions.”
