Nurses have always been the cornerstone of the NHS

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 29/09/2015

Reading the memories of nurses who trained together in Belfast 60 years ago makes one realise that theirs was no ordinary profession. It was a vocation founded on a desire to help others in time of need.

While specialist doctors can perform medical miracles, very often the thing that sticks most in patients' memories is the care and devotion shown by nurses, both in hospital and in the community.

They are the often unheralded lynchpins of the NHS and today face greater pressures than ever before due to increased workloads and more specialised duties. They have a proud legacy to uphold.
