NHS workers across the Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board will be celebrated in an upcoming exhibition.

Nurses and Doctors working across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde will be photographed and shown at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary before going to other sites across the area.

Jackie Sands, Arts and Health Co-ordinator at NHSGGC said: “This exhibition is extremely timely and will reflect the real-life, work and experiences of our colleagues as they have faced a challenge like no other. But more than that, it will recognise the huge diversity of the people who work with us, embracing what we call our One NHS Family.”

NHS photographer Lisa Miller has been busy capturing the images of workers. She said the project had been "great fun". She added: “I want those being portrayed to get a sense of pride and achievement when they look at their portrait and feel like they are a truly valued member of our NHS team.

"I hope those who see the portraits see how varied our workforce is and all the different roles people play to come together to provide an amazing service to the public.”

One of those pictured in the exhibition is Oudwin Griffith, a Senior Clinical Nurse Specialist based at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, and Chair of the BME Staff Network, said: “I felt that I should volunteer to be part of the exhibition, in the hope that other staff from a BME background would come forward and be included. This not only helps staffGlasgow Times: but patients from a similar background too.

“I am excited about the potential impact of the exhibition on BME staff and patients going forward.”

Ayesha Bains, Workforce Equality Project Officer, Human Resources and Project Lead for the exhibition, said: “As the biggest employer in one of the most diverse populations in Scotland, we are keen to ensure that our workforce is representative of the diverse patient community we serve.
