I qualified as a registered nurse in 1980, but then had a long career gap due to my husband’s work in Germany.
On my return in 1988 I started working with older people. My role as a practice nurse and then as a nurse practitioner in a busy 5 partner GP Practice enabled me to develop knowledge in the management of long term conditions. Following completion of a BSc(Hons) in community health nursing, I then went on to set up and manage The Galvani Practice, which was a specialist practice that provided general and specialist services for older people in care homes.
I completed an MA in leading innovation and change in 2007. Following this I continued to work in the NHS as a senior manager leading services that delivered care to older people in the community and hospital.
I moved into the private sector in 2012 and have continued to work in various leadership and management roles that have enabled me to continue to make a difference to the lives of older people.
I am passionate about delivering an outstanding service for our residents, so that they are able to achieve the best well-being to enable them to fulfil their potential.
I am also committed to training and development to ensure that our staff have the skills and competences they require to deliver high quality care to our residents, and achieve job satisfaction.
