The culture of our company is both open and supportive.  We recognise that our success is dependent upon the collective energy, intelligence and contributions of each and every member of the Cavell team.

We strive to bring our colleagues, service users and the community together to achieve positive outcomes for all.    

Why The Name Cavell Healthcare?

Our company name is in honour of the very inspirational and courageous Norfolk-born British Nurse, Edith Louisa Cavell.  Edith Cavell is known for her dedication to the nursing profession and her compassion for all.

Visitors to our headquarters in Norwich are greeted with an image of Edith Cavell, reminding us daily of her determination to help those in need at all times, a legacy we look to continue in her honour with dignity and pride.

During World War I, she helped some 200 soldiers escape from German-controlled Belgium.  The soldiers, many of whom were injured, were nursed back to health by Edith and guided through an underground tunnel to safety via the Netherlands.

Edith did not discriminate and helped soldiers from both sides of the war.  In 1915, at the age of 49, Edith was arrested by German authorities and found guilty of treason.

She was sentenced to death, despite strong international opposition.  She had saved the lives of both the Allies and German soldiers, treating all as equal, but this was not enough to save her own life.  The night before her execution, Edith Cavell was visited by an Anglican chaplain.

She was calm and resigned and although she realised that she had been betrayed by those she had helped; she did not seek revenge. 

“This I would say standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.”

- Edith Cavell, October 1915.
