Dear Colleagues

The PNA have been in a process of engagement with regard to the recognition of nurses for their response to the Covid 19 pandemic since 2020.

Unfortunately, although we did report last week that it was hoped that all frontline staff would be completed by the end of February, it would now appear that completion of all frontline staff will not happen until the first week of March. This is due to the numbers of available vaccines.
