- Credit: Archant
They work tirelessly day in, day out to care for you and save lives - so take a few moments to thank these heroic frontline workers at Ipswich and Colchester hospitals on International Nurses Day.
As growing numbers have fallen ill during the coronavirus pandemic, these workers for the East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) - which runs the two hospitals - have put themselves at risk to help others.
Yet they’ve been saving lives long before Covid-19 struck - in children’s wards, A&E departments, operating theatres and in the community.
Much of their work is behind the scenes, out of view - but has been brought into even sharper focus by the Covid-19 crisis.
Lisa Nobes, chief nurse for NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk, NHS West Suffolk and NHS North East Essex clinical commissioning groups, said: “There’s no doubt that during this time of coranvirus we value their work even more and thank them for everything they are doing.
“This is a difficult time for many, but it is cheering that there is so much community spirit present, with people looking out for each other.”
