John Summerton - Nurse

What is your role at Belong?  I am one of the village Nurses; working as part of a  nursing team which looks after people who have higher levels of care and support.  We also support other care teams, residents, household teams and apartment customers around the village with regular visits throughout the day.

What do you enjoy most about your work?  I love the positive atmosphere at the village and the fact that no two days are the same.  It's great to have the flexibility to be where h elp is needed most.

What are it's hidden challenges? I provide nursing support to a large number of residents with varying needs which can be challenging; however my nursing colleagues and whole staff team are very supportive.

How do you like to unwind?  My favourite thing is to talk my dogs, Bolt and Pepper, down by (and in Pepper's case) in the river.

If you had to sum yourself up in three words, what would they be?  Tall, kind, funny (I hope!).
