World Health Day

At Gaia, we wholeheartedly support the World Health Organization in making 2020 Year of the Nurse and Midwife of which the theme coincides with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.

We all know a nurse and a midwife, and they are never just a ‘nurse’ and never just a ‘midwife’. We celebrate World Health Day today with every single one in mind. 

‘Nurses and midwives make up the largest numbers of the NHS workforce. They are highly skilled, multi-faceted professionals from a host of backgrounds that represent our diverse communities. 2020 is our time to reflect on these skills, the commitment and expert clinical care they bring, and the impact they make on the lives of so many. This year is also an opportunity to say thank you to the professions; to showcase their diverse talents and expertise; and to promote nursing and midwifery as careers with a great deal to offer’. – NHS

Supporting the wider NHS heroes, our spa partners at Fistral Beach Hotel are saying thank you to NHS all workers with their ‘nominate an NHS hero’ gift; giving away a two-night spa break at their adult-only and ocean-facing hotel in Newquay, Cornwall, to find a moment of calm and soothe mind, body and soul.
