Welcome to the Nurses' League

(including the Journal)

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.

If you would like to contribute to the project, please email your thoughts and ideas to the Hon Secretary or the Website Manager.

Our Favourite Books

For the Children

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.
