Over 500 people, including student nurses, academics, healthcare professionals and people with learning disabilities, as well as their family and friends, gathered at a conference in Birmingham on Friday in a bid to set a new Guinness World Record.
The record attempt was made at the annual Positive Choices Conference with learning disability nursing students, which was this year organised by Birmingham City University.
Despite their best efforts, they were unable to set the new record.
Conference attendees travelled from across the UK to share best practice and learn from leading nursing professionals.
Among those who spoke at the event was the chief nursing officer for England, Ruth May.
“Learning disability nurses empower their patients to have a voice so that they have positive health care outcomes”
