Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Gillian McKnight

General Manager

My name is Gillian McKnight and I have been the General Manager at Four Hills since January 2010.

I have worked in the home since 1996 starting off as the Administrator and thereafter being promoted to the Assistant Manager.

Prior to coming to Four Hills I worked for many years with the NHS and also in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation unit.  Four Hills however has been by far the place where I have received the greatest job satisfaction.

I am not alone with a long service to the home with many of the team having 10, 15 and even 20 years service!

Four Hills has a really homely atmosphere and I am sure this is down to the team being so positive about the home and all who live here.

Isla Sinclair

Deputy General Manager

Isla is our Deputy General Manager who has a wealth of nursing experience in elderly care. She has excellent clinical skills and is always on hand to give sound advice to the nursing and care team. She takes the role of mentor and clinical lead seriously, carrying out supervision sessions ensuring the workforce keep up to date.

Isla is a big part of the home and has just celebrated 20 years service.
