Healthcare Assistants - Our Unsung Heroes

I am so pleased we were able to celebrate International Nursing Assistants' Day on the 12th June 2014 in Leeds. 

Nationally therapy assistants and nursing assistants are an essential part of our workforce and are often the unsung heroes. In LCH, care assistants are trained, hardworking and professional.  In my experience as a health professional and as a recipient of healthcare, an experienced care assistant can turn a traumatic experience into a positive caring interaction. They can diffuse anxiety with friendly, confident and competent care.

Thank you to all of our healthcare support workers.
