I trained as a Registered Nurse in Lincoln County Hospital 1973-1976 and for a few years worked in the field of Elderly Medicine. I have had a varied Nursing career in between spending time bringing up a young family. I have experience as a Practice Nurse working for a local General Practitioner for 3 years. This gave me a feel for community care after working closely with the District Nurses. In September 1992, my husband and I decided to have a change of direction in our careers and because health care was our profession we made the decision to start New Care Services Nursing Agency. In 1997 we were fortunate enough to take over Cornerstone, one of the longest established care services in Preston. Cornerstone has continued to provide services for clients who were with the company prior to 1997, supported by some of the original staff that joined us at the same time. The company has continued to expand and will continue to provide high quality service to all its clients. I am an NVQ assessor, a member of the Chartered Management Institute, and have audit training. I will continue to keep up to date with current changes in legislation and develop my professional knowledge and skills. I have completed the Train the Trainer course and in September 2009 completed PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Learning). I am committed to ensuring the company I started and am proud of, continues to provide a high standard, high quality service to a wide range of service users supported by a dedicated team of managers and well trained and skilled team of care workers. Our Company supports equal opportunities and anti discriminatory practices. We are committed to Dignity in Care and the Dementia initiative.
