Poems in the Waiting Room is a tiny charity that does a great thing. We publish short collections of poems for patients to read while waiting to see their family doctor. It's our way of saying 'Thank You' to the NHS.
Patients tell us how lovely it is to find something different to read, and doctors tell us how much it encourages them to receive our poetry. We send out poems as bundles of 20 printed cards to go in waiting rooms, for patients to read and to take them home with them. We send out four collections each year, to over 800 waiting rooms all over the U.K. - about 1 in 12 of all the NHS genera pratice waiting rooms.
If you can help us, just £25 this Christmas will ensure we can continue to support one more waiting rooms for another year.
