grenfell tower inside

The lesson of the Grenfell Tower fire for nurses and nursing

It’s the photographs that hit you first. They’re everywhere. Hundreds of them. A toddler playing, oblivious of the camera. A mother and her young daughter, smiling. An elderly man stares out at you, a hint of a smile on his face. A series of family photos are printed on one sheet: a happy looking mum, her husband, their young children. The artist, Khadije Saye. A proud mother with her adult daughter. Carefree moments captured for posterity.
