Phone on Desk


We see every challenge as an opportunity, and our long-term aim is to eventually provide a free, 24 hour, peer-led phone service to our nursing and midwifery colleagues within the UK. We want to ensure that we offer a sustainable and well-supported service with a solid foundation to build upon. With this in mind, we are currently undertaking a period of fundraising and increasing our volunteer capacity. This means that for now, you can find valuable information and links to other key services on our resources page, in addition to positive and uplifting stories on our blog.


We hope you will support us during this phase to enable us to fully launch our service in the near future, so that our colleagues can get the help they need, when they need it.

We'll keep you posted. Watch this space.


If you or someone around you is in immediate danger, please contact the emergency services on 999, or seek emergency medical attention at your nearest NHS Emergency Department.

If our services are unavailable and you would like to speak with someone urgently, the Samaritans are available 24 hours a day and are free to call on 116 123.

We realise that to make a lasting positive change within our professional community, safety must be our top priority. With this in mind, in anticipation of launching our helpline service we have developed a Safeguarding Policy in addition to our Privacy Notice, to ensure that we keep both our service users and volunteers safe. Select the link to view our documents and let us know if you would like to discuss the content further. Our Safeguarding Lead and senior team are keen to discuss any queries you may have.

Your safety. Our priority.
