Response from Darent Valley Hospital

The Trust has brought back matrons several years ago – every clinical area is supervised by a Matron who ensures high standards of cleanliness and nursing care. In addition, the Director of Nursing has a seat on the Trust Board and ensures that clinical and quality issues are discussed by the Board.
