Colourful mural pays tribute to nurses

Words by Blyth Brentnall

Artist Saroj Patel has painted a beautiful mural to thank nurses for the care and support they give daily.

That's great! Tell me more.

The heart-shaped painting has been unveiled at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading to pay tribute to Sue Ryder palliative care nurses working in the Thames valley. 

Throughout the artwork, messages express gratitude for the hard work of nurses who care for hundreds of people across hospitals and hospices.

The healthcare charity, Sue Ryder, commissioned the painting as part of the We Are Sue Ryder campaign to celebrates the lasting impact of their nurses.
