Nursem was born on a nursing ward to help nurses combat the effects of relentless handwashing. Since launching, we have always given a month’s worth of hand cream to NHS nurses and midwives for every purchase.

But now, more than at any other time, we need to do all we can to give back to our incredible NHS nurses and their frontline colleagues. Which is why at the end of March, we decided to give away free Nursem to an extra 10,000 nurses and NHS workers. We asked for your help to nominate an NHS hero close to your heart, as a gesture of gratitude for their continued hard work.

Thanks to everyone who joined in! We had an amazing response and are in the process of getting details from everyone who nominated so that we can send out the free hand cream as soon as possible.

As you know, our mission is to provide free hand cream to every nurse and midwife by 2025. Our #HandsUpForNurses initiative is a small but strong step closer towards this, and we look forward to updating you along the way.

Thank you, and more importantly, thank them.

Here was the first #HandsUpForNurses nomination from our co-founder, Jonny:
