‘I feel like the luckiest person because I have the best job in the world. I get to teach students what I believe in whole heartedly which is dignified, compassionate care. We all work so hard to support patient and families, it is just the most rewarding thing ever to provide great care’Sue Marshall, ellenor’s Training Facilitator.
