In Memoriam Donations

Donating in memory of a loved one is a way to celebrate their life, whilst helping the QNI improving the nursing care of others in future.

If you would like to remember a loved one in this way, you can make the arrangements through a funeral director.

Alternatively, please contact us for a Donate in Memory form on 020 7549 1400 or 

If you would prefer donations to be made to the QNI in your memory, rather than receiving floral tributes, it is a good idea to let your executors know of your wishes or to include it in the details about your funeral.

'Thank you, especially for all you did for Carol and myself, and our family over the last few months. You got so many difficult balances just right. Efficient without being officious, cheerful and cheering without being brisk or matter of fact or ever hitting a false note, knowing when we needed help and when you could boost our morale by showing us how to help ourselves. Every time we had a problem you provided us with a means of coping with it. Always having time for an extra word with me or Carol's mother or other members of the family.. We could not have wished for a better nurse or a better friend. Thank you a thousand times.'
