'I am Florence'

Florence 200

Your story matters. In celebration of the birth of Florence Nightingale and as part of the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, ArtCare want to you to take your place in our local healthcare history.

The project is called ‘I am Florence’ and it’s really simple to take part – click this link and answer the prompts, which help you tell your story about who inspired you, what you’ve achieved, what you love and what you’ve learned in your career so far… You can choose to have your name included or to share your story anonymously.

The project is open to nurses and midwives, including students and retired staff. Collected together into our permanent collection, your wide and varied stories will show how these invaluable roles have changed over time. The stories collected will be shared on the website and in an exhibition at the hospital later in the year.

Be part of the history of caring for the Salisbury Community and the inspiration to others thinking about choosing Nursing or Midwifery as their future career.
