I think NARA is a Brilliant charity to have, and I’m very proud to help raise money for such a wonderful organisation I honestly think without NARA I would have spent much more time in hospital and now I can stay at home with my family and get better in my own environment.
Thank you so much NARA
You are doing the groundwork, mopping up the mess the NHS make when they leave people with inadequate supplies. People don’t understand why the NHS don’t supply decent things, but the fact that there is someone who mops up the mess and sorts it out is awesome. You genuinely give a damn about people. You care about our quality of life – so we can do more than just basic survival.
You make my fairly challenging little life significantly easier and you’ve no idea the difference that makes to me and the people around me.

helpline for if anything happens. This gives them reassurance and peace of mind.
Prior to using NARA, my patients bought their own equipment, often at a high cost, with no guarantees that it would do what they wanted it to do. In addition there was no way of maintaining the equipment, so I could not guarantee that it would work when they most needed it and if it broke down they could be left weeks while they found the money to buy a new one and get it delivered. I recently referred a gentleman with advanced lung disease who’d had many admissions to hospital because he didn’t know what to do when he got most breathless. He and his wife found this very frightening and had no choice but to ring an ambulance. He was often only kept in for a few hours before being discharged home after a frightening experience. I referred him to NARA for a nebuliser and wrote him a management plan explaining what to do in the event of severe breathlessness and when to use a nebuliser. He received the equipment and has not been admitted to hospital since. He and his wife feel reassured by having the nebuliser but also by the reassurance that if it breaks down they have someone who can help them whenever it is.
Many thanks, Rob.
Patients have always come and said how happy they have been with the service they received and the follow up calls they get from NARA.
The charity has good communication with the surgery always willing to help and answer any questions for us.
NARA is a charity we would highly recommend.
Thank you again NARA and thank you for reading.
God Bless you all in your work.
