A message from Karen Taylor, Director of Clinical Services
Right now, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, our hard-working doctors, nurses and health care teams are delivering vital care throughout our community day and night.
In these exceptional times, we’ve had to close our doors to our day services and change the way we deliver care on our inpatient unit, to ensure we keep people safe. But our patients need us, and with the NHS stretched to capacity, the vulnerable in our community need our help more than ever.
We’ve had to focus our resources and adapt at speed; and our staff are going above and beyond to ensure Martlets keeps caring. People from across our organisation are retraining and giving up their weekends to support the safe running of our hospice site. In these unprecedented times we know our patients need us more than ever and we’re working round the clock to deliver this.
But we can only provide this essential care with the support of our community. Social distancing measures are vital, but this means we’ve had to cancel our fundraising events and close our shops. We rely on the generosity of local people for almost all of our funding, so these changes are a significant challenge.
With a special gift of £20, you could pay for a nurse’s travel today and help keep our essential services running.
Your gift will ensure that people like Jayne, facing advanced cancer, can still receive vital pain management at home from a visiting specialist nurse. And in helping Jayne, you’ll be supporting her husband Robert too, who knows he can call our phone hub day or night for advice.
And Jayne and Robert are just two of the thousands of people we support every year.
We are Martlets and we’re proud to be here for everyone in Brighton, Hove and the Havens who needs our support. But with our shops unable to trade and our fundraising events cancelled, we simply will not be able to keep caring - unless you help us today.
We know we’re asking when things are hard for everyone. But please, give an emergency gift of £20, or whatever amount you can afford today
