Rainbow mural put up to honour 300 student nurses who helped in fight against coronavirus | #students | #parents

A permanent mural has been put up in Guildford to honour more than 300 student nurses from the University of Surrey who helped the NHS in the battle against Covid-19.

The commemorative mural has been made with all students’ names recognising the dedication and compassion shown by last year’s crop of final-year nursing, paramedic and midwifery students.

Some students were in paid placements for the final part of their degrees.

The mural features a rainbow which symbolised hope when tackling the first wave of the pandemic, and is located in the School of Health Sciences.

Professor Melanie Coward said: “Our Surrey students are fantastic role models for all health science students.

I would like to extend my thanks to every one of them who used their skills and knowledge to help both staff and patients during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I am so proud of these students, who supported their colleagues in the most unprecedented circumstances when it was desperately needed.

“I hope that the rainbow mural lifts people’s spirits but also reminds us of how we can achieve great things by working together.”
