Jane Rabago Ė Exeter

"Itís been very interesting. The speech by Dr Peter Carter was fascinating. He said lots of poignant things that were relevant to my circumstances."
Stephen Jobling Ė Lincoln
"Iíve never been to Congress before so it was a little daunting to start off with. Everyone has been so friendly though and the things weíve talked about at HCAsí Day so far have been really useful."
Sabiha Diwan Ė Preston
"One of my colleagues encouraged me to come to HCAsí Day and Iím glad that I came. Iím the only HCA in my role where I work so this has helped me understand the importance of what I do and how valued it is. Itís opened my eyes a lot. The RCN offers so much support for health care assistants."
