It's time to celebrate International Nurses' Day!

Nurses at Mallard Court Care Home with their fob watches

Barchester Healthcare is celebrating the wonderful work its nurses do throughout the UK by giving every Barchester nurse a fob watch as a gift on International Nurses’ Day.

Barchester Healthcare’s nurses have an important role in ensuring that residents receive the best possible quality care daily.  Their approach is person-centred and with a variety of complex care needs to attend to, their expertise and dedication is crucial to delivering excellent services.

Barchester Healthcare’s Director for Quality and Clinical Governance, Trish Morris-Thompson said: “Nearly 2,500 nurses work for Barchester Healthcare and I’m immensely proud of them all. They are caring, talented and strive daily to ensure the individuals in our homes receive the best possible quality care.

“To show our appreciation of the great job our nurses do, we want to help celebrate this hard working and incredible profession on International Nurses’ Day by giving a gift to every single Barchester nurse.”

Registered Nurses also form bonds with the relatives of each individual in their care.  They understand the difficulties that relatives and friends may face when someone close to them moves in to a care setting.  They work hard to ensure that positive relationships are developed, so that family and friends feel supported.
