Two Leeds Beckett academics invited to take part in procession to celebrate nursing
14 May 2018
Two Leeds Beckett academics have taken part in a prestigious procession and service to mark the life of Florence Nightingale.
Sue Sherwin, Dean of the Health and Community Studies School and Frances Chapman, Head of Nursing at the School, represented the University at the event at Westminster Abbey.
They were part of a procession of nurses, who took a symbolic lamp from the Florence Nightingale Chapel and escorted it to the High Altar.
The service celebrated Nursing and Midwifery, and the importance of supporting one another through challenging times. The annual Service provides a unique opportunity for nurses, midwives, health care professionals, family members and guests to celebrate their professions and at the same time give thanks for Florence Nightingale’s extraordinary legacy to healthcare.
