Gender Pay Gap Report 2018


Nightingale Hammerson is a charity providing a home from home experience for Jewish residents. We currently employ 372 staff and offer residential, nursing, dementia, respite and end of life care. Our care is currently rated in the top 3% in England as graded by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

 At the heart of our approach is a warm, respectful relationship between our staff and every single resident. It’s what we mean by Person Centred Care – taking into account the individual wishes, characters and histories of everyone we look after. This along with our values underpins our care for residents and staff.
