Through my placements, I’ve learnt that it’s the little things that matter the most. Competence, professionalism and technical skills are essential, but it’s kindness, a smile, a welcome cup of tea, and a genuine warmth, that patients appreciate and remember.Wendy Barrie, Nursing Studies (Registered Nurse Adult Nursing) BSc (Hons)
