Initiative launched by Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church Parish Nurse shortlisted for a Nursing Times award

Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church are delighted that an initiative launched by their Parish Nurse Catherine, in collaboration with Shoebury Health Centre, has been shortlisted for a Nursing Times award!

Caring for the Carers, shortlisted in the Nursing in the Community category, is a drop-in clinic for carers at Kathryn Court, a local care home. This monthly clinic is an important way of helping provide access to medical advice and care for those working shifts and caring for others.

Congratulations to Catherine and the team involved. We look forward to hearing more when the winners are announced in October.
