Happy International Nurses Day

Celebrating International Nurses Day

We would like to wish a Happy International Nurses day to all the hardworking nurses around the world including our nurses, nurse managers and carers who support our clients. Your contribution to our clients is what allows Cavendish Homecare to provide the highest quality care. Your commitment to your patients is what has allowed us to continue caring for our clients at home, even in these unprecedented times.

This past year has been the most challenging environment that many of us have ever had to work in and I am certain that the role of the nurse and carer will never be underestimated in the future. Our nurses and carers are the people who are there for us when we are at our worst and that is why your role is more than a job but rather a calling. We want to thank each and every one of you for your professionalism and we hope that you continue to inspire those around you, whilst continuing your great work.

Our support teams have been working on several projects, to ensure we are continually improving our quality of care and to provide you with the latest information to bolster your continual professional development. We are now participating in Project ECHO, the Lantern Model of Nursing, John’s Campaign and developing our own in-house focus groups to help dissipate learning and experience across our teams. 

Nursing staff working through the pandemic have shattered the stereotypes of nursing. The world has seen first-hand the fundamental role nursing plays in patient safety. Thank you!
