My Weekly Latest Issue April 28

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneThe weekly applause that echoes round the country is testament to what the women and men of the NHS mean to us. These people are heroes who unfailingly put themselves in harm’s way to take care of us all. In this issue, we’re thanking the NHS in our own unique way – with a look back at the life and legacy of Florence Nightingale on her 200th birthday, and a chat with a porter who cheers her patients by singing! Every NHS employee and all the key workers who have kept the country running through lockdown are amazing. We salute them all. Have a great week.

It All Started With Florence…

Before COVID-19 was even identified, the World Health Organisation had designated 2020 the Year of the Nurse. It’s also 200 years since the birth of hospital revolutionary Florence Nightingale. Join us as we trace her legacy and the evolution of nursing to the present day.

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
