Meet the team
From nurses and carers to chefs and housekeepers, staff in our home are here to deliver high quality care and services to those we support. Check below to meet some of the friendly faces you are likely to see when visiting our home:
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.
Melanie started work at Four Hills in 2004 and has been promoted recently to the Deputy General Manager of the home. Her experience as a nurse gives her the attributes to ensure the home is run efficiently, clinically safe and also to have a happy environment. Melanie is both approachable and experienced – the main attributes of a good manager.
Eric has worked for Four Hills since 2006 working his way up from Registered Nurse to Head of Unit where he is the clinical lead in ensuring great care for the complex/palliative residents who come to live in the home from hospital. He recently won the prestigious Scottish Care Award for Palliative and End of Life Care Practice.
Margaret leads a unit that provides great care to a variety of vulnerable people many of whom require end of life care. She is a compassionate and caring nurse and we are lucky she has been part of the home for 18 years.
Belinda has 20 years-service with the company. She runs a tight ship and “her” residents always come first. Belinda makes sure that her team not only deliver a high standard of care but create an environment of calmness and fun.
Camille has been working for the home for 15 years and has recently been promoted to Unit Manager where she is doing a great job. Camille is a dedicated nurse and both residents and staff love her.
Marie Crainey & Eileen Orr
Marie and Eileen are two of our Activity Coordinators. They have 21 and 20 years-service respectively. Marie has been in the role since joining the company and Eileen recently joined the activity team although she was often involved in social events when working with the housekeeping team. They provide a varied and entertaining schedule for everyone’s taste and needs and enjoy every minute of it.
Paul, our Head Chef, is very passionate about his work and regularly takes part in The Big Breakfast, where he hosts a fancy breakfast with some of the residents. Paul also holds demonstrations on Pizza making and cake decorating along with developing delicious menus for every resident.
Wullie, also known as Mr Four Hills. has been working in the home since its opening in 1993. He is loyal to the home and the residents who live here, making sure everything is maintained to the highest standard. He was recently promoted and assists other homes too.
Tracy combines her expertise in providing not only first class care in the home but also ensures that everyone is trained to a high standard ensuring that the team develop their skills. Tracy was the BHC Divisional Winner for Care Practitioner of the Year in 2019. Tracy is a valuable team member for both Four Hills and Barchester.
