Welcome to the Nurses' League
A request for your thoughts/ideas on what makes a paediatric nurse special
At our chapel service before the reunion and AGM, our chaplain, Jim Linthicum, gave us a project! He would like to hear our ideas about what makes a paediatric nurse so special, and also any thoughts about the special qualities we need.

There were some problems with the distribution of the journal in 2018. If you know of anyone who had paid for one but did not receive it, please contact the Membership Secretary.
We currently have some vacancies for Link Members notably in Kent and Berkshire. Link members keep in touch with League members in their county, hold coffee mornings and advise re applications to the benevolent fund. For any more information please contact the Membership Secretary.
Our Favourite Books
By Michelle Baillie and Lyz Warren, with foreword by Michael Aspel OBE. This book shows the commitment of staff, families, volunteers and supporters, combined with a fierce determination not to let the children down. Tadworth Court not only survived but has gone from strength to strength during the first 25 years.
