2020 marks an important year in healthcare and has been designated by the World Health Organisation as International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. This coincides with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who has strong links with the Salisbury area. As part of these celebrations, Salisbury District Hospital are honouring their nursing staff in very special ways, and ArtCare are supporting them with a year-long programme of special events and activities.
