Their aim was to commend everyone on their work and resilience over the last couple of months, with the COVID-19 pandemic. The team shared their experiences with Kevin and Duncan in regard to how they managed to keep working and excelling, while also helping other local partners and business’ along the way.

Kevin McCarthy said “With updated HM Government guidelines now permitting business travel, it was great to visit both campuses and to catch-up with the team.  As we approach our 2nd anniversary at Hinkley Campus it is truly remarkable to see the extraordinary response that the team have had to the COVID-19 crisis.  Their positivity, team spirit and care were palpable.  It is amazing to note that since “lock-down” we have managed over 43,000 room nights, with regularly over 700 residents staying overnight, and yet there has been not one single confirmed case of COVID-19 in our campuses.  Congratulations and respect to the team for keeping our guests, themselves, and the NHS safe.”
