Healthcare support workers have a value to society that is beyond measure, according to local MP Jamie Stone.
He was giving his backing to Nursing Support Workers’ Day, recognising the contribution made by nursing support employees across the UK.
It is the second annual appreciation day organised by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
The day also plays a part in the We Care campaign from RCN Scotland, which aims to shine a light on the contribution that nursing support workers make to the health and social care sector.
Mr Stone, the Liberal Democrat MP for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, said: “In sickness and in health, like so many families, my family has every reason to be deeply grateful to nursing support staff.
"Our healthcare support workers, care assistants, healthcare assistants and many others working in similar roles in nursing and social care have a value to society that is beyond measure. I am honoured to support Nursing Support Workers’ Day 2021.”
