Our Cancer Charity

Home Our Cancer Charity

We are delighted to support St Luke’s Hospice. 10% of all profits from Measure Health goes to support this local charity.

St Luke's Hospice looks after people in Harrow and Brent whose illnesses are no longer curable. They help and empower them to enjoy the best possible quality of life, knowing their family and carers are supported too. They work in partnership with, and provide education and support to GPs, community teams, nursing homes, and other healthcare professionals to ensure the highest levels of care for patients, whatever the setting. St Luke's was founded by the local community, and 75% of their funding comes from donations.
