‘Celebrating National ODPs Day’


This poem is by Jessica Downes, An ODP redeployed to ITU during the pandemic.


I will never forget you and the experience e shared.

In a time of uncertainty which we were not prepared

Unable to see loved ones and missing company

We became a new team, just you and me. 


Talking to you and always telling you about my day, 

What I did you shared it seemed to help me that way 

Helping loved ones pass messages and send you their love,

Strength and their prayers from here and above.


We fought it together, one day at a time.

Cheering you on to help you cross the finish line.

Celebrating the good days and acknowledging the positivity

Whilst remaining honest with you and your family.


As the days slipped away you fell into your sleep,

The memories of what you helped me be I will always keep,

A kinder, better person who wanted to support you through,

The last few moment of life, so precious and true.


The quiet descended and calm was felt around,

For a single second there couldn’t be heard a single found

Then the pure emotion of what you meant to family,

I include myself in that group, for that is what you became to me.

Celebrating International Nursing Day 

A Poem by Anonymous

What does it take to be a nurse?

A license on a wall?

Perhaps technically yes,

But if you think that is all

You would surely be mistake 

Because without any doubt

There is so much more than that to what nursing is about


Yes, the knowledge they’ve acquired

Is a key to what they do 

And they never stop learning

Or keeping up with what is new

But it’s in all the other aspects 

Of their professional routine

That the true meaning of nurse

Can most readily be seen


Showing genuine compassion

Listening to a patients fear

Finding time though it seems there none

To wipe away a childs tears

When facing tragedy and grief 

The strength and skill it takes to make

Firm and sound decisions

While your hearts about to break


Nurses are tireless, patient

Respectful and devoted

And even though their efforts

May not constantly be noted

They didn’t choose this life path

For glory or acclaim

And the good they do each day 

Is far more meaningful than fame.


Thank you all – from all of here at CareJoy.

We are on the move!

The last 12 months have seen CareJoy Healthcare, the Specialists’ Agency go from strength to strength.

As an NHS LPP / CPP approved agency, we continue to offer great cost-effective service for our clients in London, the South, the North East and North West to name but a few.

We also work with some of the UK’s most prestigious private care providers such as Nuffield Healthcare, Ramsey Healthcare and Spire Healthcare.

We are working with more and more clients and now we have outgrown our original offices!

Just before lock-down, Darren, Kindred, Tayler and the rest of the CareJoy team moved into Mermaid House, right on the river Thames. 

We are only a stones’ throw from Blackfriars station and a 6-minute walk from St Pauls or Mansion House stations.

We’d love to see you, so if you’re ever in the area once it’s safe to travel again, do pop in for a cup of tea!
