Elizabeth, General Manager

“As a qualified Mental Health Nurse, I am passionate about person-centred care and making every moment special for our residents. I joined the private care sector in 2015, following my time as a Clinical Educator for the NHS in complex services. I was excited to join Barchester in 2016, as the company shares my values and beliefs regarding care delivery and staff engagement. Our teams work hard to build relationships with all our residents and offer support to our relatives past and present.”
