Dr Peter Carter, RCN chief executive and general secretary, said: ‘Nursing staff are facing extraordinary disruption and difficulty and we would like to take this opportunity to thank healthcare staff across the UK who are continuing to put their patients first.
‘Nurses across the UK are walking to work in extreme temperatures with some sleeping overnight in hospitals and other healthcare facilities to ensure patients continue to receive first class care. Nurses working in remote communities are providing a vital lifeline to many vulnerable people.'
