The Diocese of Derby
The NHS and universities in Derby and Nottingham are joining together for a celebration of the life and work of Florence Nightingale, which takes place on Saturday, 17 May, marking International Nurses Week. It will see nurses, midwives and other carers from around Derbyshire make a procession through Derby city centre to Derby Cathedral, where they will take part in a commemorative public service. The procession begins at 10.30am outside St Peter’s Church in Derby and will walk to Derby Cathedral, where the public service will begin at 11am, with people attending advised to be seated by 10.45am. The address will be given by Professor Lynn McDonald, author of The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale.
