What do we do?


  • Financially, or as deemed necessary, assist League members who are in need of support.
  • Give Nursing Students in NHS Lothian the opportunity to apply for funding towards the cost of their self-funded clinical elective placement which they are required to undertake as part of their nursing degree programme.  This must be at a health care facility outwith NHS Lothian.
  • Support Registered Nurses-Adult Branch working within NHS Lothian to fund a project they have designed with a view to improving patient care.
