Mrs Logan will participate in one of four mass movements and her segment, lasting for 12 minutes, will celebrate the NHS by linking it with story-telling and literature.
‘I am truly proud to be involved in this extraordinary event, despite facing my own personal challenges, and to be representing both the NHS, the RCM, the NMC and my employer, the University of Bedfordshire, whose own inclusive, widening-access philosophy echoes that of Danny Boyle's vision of Great Britain in this ceremony,’ she said.
Mrs Logan, a senior lecturer in midwifery at the University of Bedfordshire and a midwifery link lecturer at Luton and Dunstable Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, added: ‘The ceremony's director, Danny Boyle, has attended each rehearsal and has been a consistent source of outstanding support, encouragement and laughter to the NHS volunteers.
‘Without question, it has been a pleasure to meet and work for this enigmatic and inspirational man who, publicly, has never wavered in his belief that the 800 NHS volunteers taking part in tonight’s show, with the many other volunteers, have the ability to master and deliver an outstanding performance.
‘It has been an amazing experience and has reaffirmed how great the NHS is.’
