Allana qualified as a registered nurse in 1980, but then had a long career gap due to her husband’s work in Germany. On her return in 1988 she started working with older people. Her role as a practice nurse and then as a nurse practitioner in a busy 5 partner GP Practice enabled her to develop knowledge in the management of long term conditions. Following completion of a BSc(Hons) in community health nursing, she 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.
Allana completed an MA in leading innovation and change in 2007. Following this she continued to work in the NHS as a senior manager leading services that delivered care to older people in the community and hospital.
Allana moved into the private sector in 2012 and has continued to work in various leadership and management roles that have enabled her to continue to make a difference to the lives of older people.
Allana is 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. Allana is 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.

About Hadrian House, Newcastle
Hadrian House provides general nursing, Dementia Nursing and Dementia Residential Care for older people.
Hadrian House has been designed and purpose-built to provide the very best in specialist care within the North East. Each of the 50 single en-suite bedrooms have been beautifully decorated and furnished with carefully selected bespoke fabrics and carpets, giving residents the perfect backdrop to personalise their rooms and make Hadrian House their home.
Many of the bedrooms feature en-suite wetrooms, with specialist furniture and mobility aids where required to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of our residents. LCD televisions and unlimited internet access is provided as standard.
Residents can relax in the privacy of their bedroom or in any of Hadrian House’s communal lounges which offer a range of formal and informal spaces to chat with other residents, family or friends, and participate in activities and celebrations. Hadrian House has a variety of lounges and dining rooms on each ﬂoor, giving residents plenty of space to socialise, relax and participate in activities throughout the home. There is lift access to all ﬂoors and some of the upper ﬂoor bedrooms beneﬁt from a Juliette balcony, giving residents the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of their own room. Additional outdoor space is provided on the roof terrace overlooking Wallsend Golf Course and gardens, where residents can relax in the fresh air without leaving the upper ﬂoor.
We understand the importance of independence and encourage our residents to participate in the many and varied activities which take place at Hadrian House where possible. These events include gentle exercise, physiotherapy, bingo, cards, ﬁlm nights, carpet bowls, art classes and music, as well as celebrations for our residents and their families.
We work closely with everyone involved in the care and welfare of our residents, from family and friends to GPs, carers, external professionals and nutritionists to meet the demands of our commitment to providing high quality care.
Hadrian House recently took part in pioneering research alongside The Health Foundation, with the aim of encouraging shared decision making and making care more person-centred. A short video was made to explain the project and tells the story of how the well-being of older care home residents is enhanced by making sure they are only prescribed the medicine they really need, and the positive impact this has had on the people who work on the project too.
