The Trust marked 100 years of Learning Disability (LD) Nursing with a special celebration event.
Colleagues gathered to learn about the history of LD nursing and local innovative practice. LD nursing colleagues submitted comments about what they are most proud of in their role, and a celebration cake was cut.
The event was opened by chairperson Daniel Hardy, Assistant Strategic Health Facilitator at the Trust. Learning Disability and Mental Health Nurse Consultant Gaynor Ward put together a history of LD Nursing and Daniel and Gaynor challenged attendees with a Who Wants to be a Millionaire style quiz.
Clinical Team Leader Gill Baker, who is due to retire from her LD nursing role later this year, commented: “The best thing about being an LD nurse is how privileged I feel when people with an LD share information with me and I witness their courage and bravery in doing this. I remain in awe of their achievements.
“I am so proud to have:
Children and young people's services
Learn about our services for people with a learning disability
Make an appointment
Information for members of the public and health professionals on requesting treatment and support
Learn about different ways to stay healthy and well
