Please support our nurses this Christmas.

"I had no warning of what was about to happen to me on Christmas Day 2016..." - Mark Smith

"It's a great feeling to help save a person's life," - Sarah, Cardiac Nurse

Cardiac Nurse Sarah Howe was working on Christmas Day when patient Mark Smith arrived by ambulance, needing urgent life-saving surgery.  Right by his side, Sarah performed CPR on Mark when he lost consciousness, saving his life.

Find out what it's like to be in hospital over Christmas.

No one wants to be in hospital over the festive season. That's why many of our nurses choose to work. Their commitment to, and care for, their community means they're not home celebrating with their own families and friends.

Hear from Jessica, an amazing nurse who cares for patients at Christmas.

We need your help.

You can help our nurses provide even better care for those patients who'll be coming into hospital during Christmas and for those who unfortunately will be too unwell to go home.

Nurses are amongst the most trusted healthcare professionals because of their dedication, care and compassion for patients.  They are by our patients' side every day and every night. They're carers, advocates, critical thinkers, teachers and innovators. 

At Christmas, our nurses will be providing the very best care with a festive touch to help patients feel they're not missing out.
