National Nurses Day

Today is National Nurses Day!

A special thank you to the Nurses at Valerie Manor, who in 2020 won the National Best Nursing Team at the Care Home Awards. The whole team at the Home has worked tirelessly for the past 14 months to care for not only the residents but relatives and each other too.

We are also proud to say that we have remained COVID free.

We would also like to thank all the nurses throughout the NHS & Social Care who have supported us in the past year, a special thanks to all nurses at Steyning Medical Centre, Rhia Evans & Wendy Hartley at Worthing Hospital, nurses at St Barnabas House and the local PHE team for continuous advice and guidance.

The video below says it all!
