Why Deborah loves the NHS and Sussex Community

"The NHS is a great service - open to all. It has improved over the years that I've worked for the NHS. During my career I've been able to progress and develop and I work with so many different people across different disciplines and professions. Sussex Community is a great place to work - it offers a lot of flexibility. The organisation really cares about its staff and there is good two-way communication across all staff and management. It's an open and approachable place to work."

Celebrating NHS70

"I'll be raising a glass on the official birthday on 5th July and I think our team is going to bring in cakes to share."
