“Jessica Bromage-Hughes has steered me through the complexities of a VHCC plan with enormous efficiency. It has been a great relief to pass the burden of this onto someone who clearly has a firm grasp of the procedures. She prepared an accurate case plan from the complex information on the electronic file without having to come back to me except to approve the plan and the updating versions. I have been impressed and would highly recommend Jessica.”
