South Denbighshire's community team get on their bikes to celebrate International Nurses Day


Healthcare support workers and nurses covering south Denbighshire used pedal power to celebrate International Nurses Day.

Their two-wheeled jaunt, which saw two nurses wearing uniforms from yesteryear, was organised by community staff nurse Chris Marston (pictured left).

They are all part of the South Denbighshire Community Resource Team (CRT), which works alongside social care partners and based at County Hall, Ruthin.

Chris revealed the care from community nurses given to her husband convinced her to make the decision to return to nursing 18 months ago – after a 20-year hiatus.

“I am a return to practice nurse and I’m absolutely loving it,” she said. “It’s like a second career.

“I first worked as a nurse between 1985-2000. In fact this is the uniform I wore back in the 80s when I started. I had kids, ran a business and was even a county councillor while I was out of nursing.

“I lost my husband, who had a brain tumour, and these district nurses who looked after him inspired me to come back. I’ve been back 18 months and I love it.”
