More nursing and midwifery stories from Derbyshire

Aimie, a nurse from University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation, who worked on the frontline caring for patients with Coronavirus shared a special moment early this year of when she was reunited with her family after seven weeks apart.

Aimie who has worked at the Trust for five years, left her three children behind with their father at the end of March to enable her to continue working as a nurse as their young daughter, who suffers from asthma was shielding. She was delighted to be reunited with her family after working away for seven weeks.

Aimie said: “My daughter Ivy has now said she’d love to be a nurse one day after seeing what her mummy has been doing with her team – her original career route was to become a princess!”
