International Nurses Day

Today is International Nurses Day – our chance to thank all those people who make nursing their careers.

Cleft New Zealand on behalf of families throughout the country, would like to thank all the nurses who work with our children. Your empathy, understanding, nursing knowledge really makes a difference to our experiences in hospital. So to Ronel and her team at Middlemore, Jo and her team at Waikato, Hutt and Christchurch – thanks for your special care of our treasures.

A special thanks to the Cleft Nurse Co-ordinators, Megan Sanders, Jane Wi

ddowson and Ruth Berry, Susan Reay and Harriette Van der Zee. Your role has made a huge difference to the experience families have, information and accessability, understanding and flexibility empower parents and grow trust and confidence within the system.

If you would like to add your messages of thanks, we will make sure the nurses see them.  You can add your comments here, or add to our facebook page.  (remember you have to be logged into your facebook account first)
