Welcome to Season 2 of Changing Lives! We’re the new podcast by and for the staff at Cygnet Health Care. Our staff really do change people’s lives. We come from all walks of life and have a diverse range of skills, expertise, and knowledge. Every single one of our staff helps to empower people to change their lives for the better. This podcast celebrates the great work they do and shares their stories and experiences to help colleagues celebrate and learn from each other. Thanks for listening. It really does mean a lot to us.
