“Ever since starting at Essential in January 2016 it’s been absolutely great from day 1. The training is so thorough and interesting and always ongoing to keep everything up to date. All the staff are so friendly and caring and are always happy to help. I am a Domiciliary Carer and mainly carry out night shifts which I get regularly. The clients I do care for are happy with the work I carry out, thanks to Essential for all the training enabling me to help others.”

"I chose Essential because having worked in a hospital, I came across Essential nurses and carers and always found them to be confident, caring and well trained. I joined Essential because they were a local agency and the training and supervision is very good and I could choose where and when I wanted to work. If you have any worries there is always someone on the end of a phone to help and support you."
Jean Cunningham, Registered Nurse
