    I have received my official letter of Registration from the CQC today. I could not have done any of this without the beautiful TINA HALL. She made me feel like I was the only person that she was helping which I know is far from true! She never tired from my 'daft' questions when I was having 'blonde' moments. She reassured me and gave me confidence when I was ready to throw in the towel! Tina was patient, extremely helpful… Emma Howarth - Able Care Huddersfield
