2020 International Year of the Nurse & Midwife!

The World Health Organisation has declared 2020 the Year of the Nurse & Midwife for the invaluable contribution to health care globally!

In each of our 31 Qualitas Health General Practice locations, we have nurses who demonstrate daily in their exceptional care outstanding delivery of our patient-focused values.

We are so proud to have such amazing, skilled and passionate health care professionals within our Qualitas practices.

WHO states the world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030.
