A NURSE agency which operates in West Wales has paid tribute to the “tremendous courage” shown by healthcare workers since the start of the pandemic more than two years ago.
Showing its appreciation to the health and care industry, Direct Nursing Services is sponsoring not one but two categories in this year’s West Wales Health & Care Awards.
The company, established in 1998, will support the Community-Based Individual of the Year and Excellence in Quality Health and Social Care awards at the September 15 ceremony.
Werndale Hospital, part of the Circle Health Group, is the main sponsor of next month’s event, which will take place at the Pembrokeshire County Showground in Haverfordwest.
“We would like to thank the Western Telegraph for holding these awards, as we continue to pay tribute to frontline workers, especially those in the healthcare sector, to whom we should all be eternally grateful,” Dale said. Russell of Direct Nursing Services.
“These awards are designed to celebrate all that is good for healthcare workers and the NHS, who we are so proud to partner with.
“As we reflect on the skills, dedication, compassion and expertise of healthcare workers and in recognizing the positive difference they make in the lives of so many people, we thank you.
“Direct Nursing Services has been privileged to work with thousands of nurses and healthcare support workers and clients over the past 25 years across South, Mid and West Wales, and we would also like to give them our personal appreciation.
“Each year brings its own challenges, but the last few years have been more demanding than most.
“Our health, social care and NHS services have been under immense pressure, and the daily pressure that staff and the people we serve have endured is unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime.
“The way Wales reacted was just amazing.”
She added: “Throughout the pandemic, the care and commitment to duty of each of you reflects the immense courage you have found to meet the demands placed upon you.
“Such courage only comes from the deepest compassion and qualities that define who you are and what you do.
“We want to thank you and your staff for who you are, we thank your families for their understanding of who you are, what you have done and continue to do.
“As we continue to strive to slow the spread of Covid-19, your ongoing hard work on behalf of the British public is more vital than ever.
“We congratulate all winners and finalists with our complete admiration and respect.”
