    Ann Keen

    Professor Ann Lloyd Keen Registered Nurse and Campaigner

    Ann is a Registered Nurse, Campaigner and  former MP. She came to politics very early in her nursing career driven by her underpinning determination to challenge inequity especially related to the older person and also health care staff pay and employment conditions. She was met with formidable challenge as she campaigned, but her tenacity led to key changes and success in these and wider aspects of civil issues.

    Ann still hears colleagues say today  ‘I’m just a nurse’ and  wants nurses to know  the individual voice with a supportive collective  can lead for amazing  and important change. Ann  continues to campaign on a number  of important issues, most notably she is Chair of the Cannabis Patient Advocacy & Support Services (CPASS), seeking to provide safe access to medicinal cannabis.

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
