Why have East London NHS Foundation Trust joined 'Working with'?
"Becoming a member of Cavell Nurses' Trust will provide an extra lifeline to nursing staff who are trying to stay on top of their finances. The practical advice and support offered by the Trust will support them in coping with unexpected expenses and offer solutions.
