Help Support Our Nurses

“I love the National Garden Scheme which has been the most brilliant supporter of Queens Nurses like me. It was founded by the Queens Nursing Institute which makes me very proud. As we battle Coronavirus on the front line in the community, knowing we have their support is a real comfort.”
