L&R pledges safety net for nursing professionals

L&R is showing its support of UK nurses by joining the ‘Working with’ Cavell Nurses’ Trust membership programme which aims to transform the lives of nursing professionals facing financial hardship.
“L&R Medical UK is extremely proud to be working with Cavell Nurses’ Trust. The work that Cavell Nurses’ Trust does to transform the lives of nursing professionals in their time of need is remarkable and we are honoured to be able to support this. L&R are dedicated to providing solutions that both improve outcomes and release time to care and it is the caring values that we share with the Cavell Nurses’ Trust that makes the relationship so exciting for us” said Simon Mangan, Managing Director at L&R Medical UK.
The programme brings together like-minded companies, NHS Trusts and organisations who collectively believe that nursing professionals should receive the support they deserve when facing financial hardship. It is run by Cavell Nurses’ Trust, a UK charity that supports UK nurses, midwives and HCAs when they’re suffering personal or financial hardship, often due to illness, disability, older age and domestic abuse.
L&R’s support comes at an important time. Research from Cavell Nurses’ Trust reveals that nursing professionals are twice as likely as the public to suffer financial hardship. Worryingly, they are also three times as likely to suffer domestic abuse. On average, 63 nursing professionals every week seek help from Cavell Nurses’ Trust, with a total of 3,300 approaching the charity in 2018.
Of the people Cavell Nurses’ Trust helped in the last year:
- 91% said the support positively affected their mental health
- 83% said the support they received positively affected their physical health
- 76% said the support they received helped them get back to, or stay in, work
Chief Executive of Cavell Nurses’ Trust, John Orchard, commented: “It’s a delight to welcome L&R to the ‘Working with’ membership programme. It’s fantastic to see a successful, international organisation like L&R showing their commitment to the welfare of nurses facing financial hardship.”
