Our specialist nurses and care staff are trained in-house to the highest medical and industry standards in home care and complex care in the home for children and adults.

Emma Riley – Junior Care Co-ordinator

I have worked for 1st Care Nursing since 2010, initially as a Care Assistant and in August 2012 I was promoted to the role of Care Co-ordinator. I am responsible for putting together staff rotas, dealing with client queries and general office administration.

In my spare time I enjoy running and riding fast motorbikes.

Emily Hawes - Junior Care Co-ordinator/Administrator

I am the most recent member of the 1st care nursing staff, so the baby of the group so to speak! I have been working in the care industry for about 5 years where I specialised as a respite support worker, with a variety of different clients and I have had specialist training to work with both adults and children. To further my career, I decided to work on the other side of care management, and am now a Junior Care Co-ordinator/Administrator. I deal with the staff rotas, client queries and other Health and Social care professionals.

Barbara Druce – On Call Coordinator

AKA Barbie! I have now worked for 1st Care Nursing for 18months as an out of hours care coordinator and care assistant. This is by far the most rewarding role I have ever undertaken. I love bringing a smile to peoples’ faces and making a difference in their lives. As well as dealing with out of hours emergency situations, which can be very challenging, I answer care and staff queries so have to be knowledgeable about all our clients.

When not on-call, I work in the community with the elderly and vulnerable and go home knowing that I have done a worthwhile days work.
