When you need help, medical expertise is a must. So, our services are provided entirely by qualified and experienced nurses – practitioners who are fully trained and registered, with up-to-date skills. They’re people who have worked first-hand with the illnesses, traumas and conditions our customers are living through; they’ve worked on busy wards, they’ve supported people – and their loved ones – through times of crisis; they’ve helped people adjust their lives to better accommodate old age, including with complex medical conditions.
Our experience can help you through
Our teams of nurses have hundreds of years’ combined experience, in many healthcare roles. When facing a new and daunting challenge, there’s nothing more comforting than receiving help from someone who’s navigated the same situation before, perhaps many times.
But, while essential, medical training and experience is only part of what our customers need.
When people need help, they also need patience, consideration and empathy. They need someone to really listen to their problems, understand their needs – and to help them in the most sympathetic way possible.
Providing this kind of support, primarily over the telephone, is a skill in itself. While physically distant, our nurses are able to quickly create a connection with customers and develop trust – a bond that enables customers to relax, and talk openly and confidentially about their needs. Our nurses get to know them; they get to know our nurses.
This is the MorganAsh difference. Our nurses understand our customers’ practical requirements, but they also understand that these aren’t by any means the extent of a person’s needs. They consider the whole person – and that person’s specific, individual situation. What’s best for that person. What that person has gone through. What that person can expect to go through. Our nurses are there to help; there to lean on; there for that journey.
It takes a special kind of person to be a MorganAsh nurse. Yes, we look for medical expertise, but at least as important is the ability to listen, understand and help.
It’s important to us that customers know how carefully we select the MorganAsh teams. We know that when people come to us, they may be in the middle of a life-changing crisis. The time we spend with them counts. We have to get things right. To do this, we have rigorous selection criteria.
We look for those whose skills contribute to those of the team – so that we have specialists in different healthcare disciplines, both physical and mental, helping us to support people with a wide range of needs.
A great part of our role is to understand others. The ability to empathise, care and help – warmly – isn’t something that everyone naturally possesses. For us, this is vitally important and it’s something we seek in all of our nurses. Being able to help, to create a bond of trust, is something that provides a channel for any medical knowledge.
Our team are spread around the country, as well as at our head office in Cheshire.
We have rigorous selection criteria, designed to help us find those applicants with the exceptional skills we need – backed, of course, by current medical experience.
