With significant and in-depth working knowledge of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, Jenny is also an elected Councillor and Cabinet Member at Watford Borough Council; responsible for well-being and operations for Dementia Friendly Watford, Pensioners’ Forum and Watford’s Ageing Well community.   She is passionate about the provision of outstanding care for older people in residential care and care within the community.

The Board wishes to thank Helen for her dedicated and professional leadership of Nightingale Hammerson.  The last 8 years have been among the most transformative in the charity’s history.  Highlights include our transition from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’ with the CQC, opening the Apples and Honey Nightingale Nursery and the introduction of the intergenerational programme and the re-building and opening of Hammerson House, Wohl Campus.
