We thank you if you took the time to applaud frontline workers each week – including acknowledging so many of our own student nurses entering the workforce for the first time – or perhaps have been volunteering your time through online engagements as a USW Volunteer, helping inspire our current students as they consider their next steps in a difficult job market. 

We thank you if you were one of our USW Telephone Friends who rallied around to help our international students who were stranded in the UK at the start of the pandemic, and we thank you if you continue to go above and beyond in your profession to keep the wheels turning on normality – we’re so proud of you all. Keep on carrying on.

Everyone’s being really supportive and working together and collaborating to try and answer this one massive global problem we have at the moment.

Dr Emma Hayhurst (PGCert, 2017)
