Becca Gatherum Policy and research manager, Scottish Care

Earlier this year, Scottish Care, a membership organisation and the representative body for independent social care services in Scotland, published a report called Voices from the Nursing Front Line. This tells the story, in nurses’ own words, of what they love about working in care homes and the challenges it involves. In other words, why they choose to enter, stay and leave.
