RCN Wales Nurse of the Year 2020
On behalf of the RCN Wales Board and staff, we would like to let you know that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to cancel the RCN Wales Nurse of the Year Awards 2020 that were due to be held on the 19 November 2020.
We know everyone greatly looks forward to these annual awards, and our decision was a difficult one, but as our nurses and other health care workers step up in response to the coronavirus, it's clear now is not the time to hold these awards.
However, we are pleased to inform you that the RCN Wales Nurse of the Year Awards 2021 will be held on Wednesday, 10 November 2021 at City Hall, Cardiff.
We would like to thank you all for your support of the RCN Nurse of the Year awards, which over the years has enabled us to make this prestigious event a significant success that showcases how highly nurses, midwives, students and health care support workers are valued within Wales.
Over the coming months we will keep you updated on the progress and planning for the launch of the 2021 awards.
Thank you all for your hard work and commitment during this difficult time, whether caring for patients directly, or supporting the nursing community and health and social care in other ways.
Helen Whyley, Director, RCN Wales
Denise Llewellyn MBE, FRCN, Board Chair, RCN Wales
