Hundreds of NHS staff will gather at Derby Cathedral next Saturday to celebrate the life and legacy of the woman who was the founder of modern nursing.

The annual service to celebrate the life of Florence Nightingale takes place at Derby Cathedral at 11 am on Saturday 14 May.

NHS staff from across Derbyshire will be attending the event, which is open to the public. Before the service, nursing and healthcare staff will march through the city.

The service will recognise the impact that Florence Nightingale had on modern nursing and the connections she had with Derbyshire, being raised in Lea Hurst, Holloway and advising on the design of the former DRI. 

Members of the public are invited to attend the commemorative service, which is free and is open to everyone. Please arrive in time to take your seat by 10.45 am.
