Dear Nurses Network,

I hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine recently and all of the bank holiday weekends this month! 

I firstly want to welcome all of our new members this month, as there have been quite a few(!) - I hope you enjoy the articles below and please don't hesitate to contact me anytime if you have any questions at all.

Please have a look below for a roundup of our very successful 2017 Impact Days, information on our ongoing Tea with the Girls campaign, an insight into living with blood cancer and the invaluable difference which nurses make from one of our Patient Ambassadors, and much much more...!

Happy reading and do let us know if you have any questions at all, if you'd like any more information or if you would like to get involved.
