Covid-19 Update

We want to assure you all that you have the Burdett Trust for Nursing’s support at this unprecedented time.
First of all we would like to thank you and all of the nurses, midwives and health workers across the world who are working tirelessly to care for those who have been affected by this virus and those who are vulnerable. Thank you. Never have nurses and health workers had more responsibility and a higher workload and we sincerely appreciate all your hard-work and resilience at this time.

The Burdett Trust would also like assure our grant recipients that we will support you during this period of uncertainty. We realise that your research or project work will have to be put to one side and that this will incur delays to our initial grant plans. We are very willing to be pragmatic and flexible with grant recipients and your needs. We will be in contact with all of our current grant recipients over the summer for an update.

We are currently looking at ways in which we can support nurses on the front line. This is an ongoing discussion and we will update you as soon as we have formulated a plan.

Thank you again. Stay safe and we will be in touch soon.

Shirley Baines
Chief Executive, The Burdett Trust for Nursing
