Education and training are central to our philosophy of Care, since we are able to help people more appropriately when we understand their needs more fully. This culture reflects in the quality of our Care, which is only as good as the staff who deliver it and it is to them that credit must be given for our good reputation.

Teamwork is essential and our aim is to continually work towards better communication, which is vital to good care and reducing misunderstanding. Mistakes will happen, but wherever possible these are seen as an opportunity for us all to learn, rather than a reason to apportion blame.
