Jane joined our practice in 2002 as a practice nurse and immediately set about establishing evidence based policies, protocols and procedures which improved the quality and safety of the care we deliver to our patients. Most of these are still in place today and are used by our current practice nurse. While with us she demonstrated excellent organisational and leadership qualities. She played an important role in the training of GPs and nurses for the launch of the national Heartwatch programme in 2004 and went on from there to a training and mentoring role with the RCSI practice nurse programme while still working part time with our practice. Her commitment to evidence based practice and attention to details is an example to others in the healthcare arena.

Having worked with Jane in the homecare industry, I found her extremely professional to work alongside. Her strong work ethic, along with her vast medical experience helped develop a high quality service to our clients. Her attention to detail and people management skills enabled the company to develop policies and control measures to ensure the highest standard of care was provided at all times. I wish Jane the very best of luck in her new venture, it truly was a pleasure to work with her.
Linda Dempsey, HR & Operations Manager, ViviHomeCare (2011)
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jane for many years in the Irish Practice Nurses Association during my time as both Practice Nurse and Conference Co-ordinator. Jane has always been the epitome of professionalism in both clinical and management roles. While sharing committee work, I have found her to be innovative, enthusiastic and calm in all situations. As a speaker, Jane engages with her audience as her topic is always well researched and delivered in a confident and easy manner. More recently Jane worked with me on an independently produced conference and provided much reassurance with her organised and calm approach to any situation. I would not only recommend but encourage anyone to work with or for Jane, they will not be disappointed.

As Director of one of the longest established healthcare Fetac accredited training centres in Ireland, Health Training United Care, we invited Jane and her team to complete a Training Needs Analysis of all Homecare companies, Nursing homes & some smaller Hospitals in the Leinster region. This helped us to inform the future direction of our business by ascertaining the training requirements of our current and potential clients.
The TNA report was extremely good, very well researched and we received solid results with comprehensive recommendations to meet the on-going education regulation changes, HIQA Standards and work force challenges in this growing industry. We are appreciative of the excellent advice which has allowed us to formulate a strategic plan for our market and implement new certifications. I would have no hesitation in recommending HealthCare Minds, Jane was professional at all times, an excellent communicator and worked closely with us to understand our needs.
Jean Day, Director, Health Training United Care (2013)
