By supporting our Sponsor a Nurse campaign with a monthly gift, you can help us continue to provide specialist nursing care to people in East London, every hour of every day.


“We make sure we get to know our patients as individuals. It isn’t just about managing the physical symptoms, but also helping with other things that are going on in their lives – it might be referring them for complementary therapies or counselling, or it could be taking the time to listen to their fears and anxieties.”

“The best thing about my job is the gratitude from patients and their relatives. They often have a sense of hopelessness but when the nurse offers support, they realise that people haven’t given up on them and life can still go on.”
