Christian Science Nursing at Charton Manor
** The Mother Church have asked that we "not accept new patients requiring skilled Christian Science nursing care until it is verified by The Commission that there are sufficient, trained and qualified staff employed and available."
Charton Manor is currently only accepting new patients with light Christian Science nursing needs. We can always advise as to whether we can assist or not. **
