#BUProud of our healthcare community

2020 marked the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and this will be extended to 2021 in Europe. As we all know, throughout the extraordinary year, nurses, midwives and all healthcare professionals have worked tirelessly to help those in their care. This includes 400 BU healthcare students, who have been working in practice to assist in the battle against Covid-19. We are extremely #BUProud of these students and the whole BU healthcare community.

On working in practice throughout the pandemic:

Our role during Covid-19 has always been women-centred and I have been lucky enough to support and empower women in my care alongside a team of qualified midwives. This photo is special to me. It shows the professional yet raw moments within midwifery. It really is an amazing role.
