Hi, my name is Nicola, and I am the General Manager here at Hilderstone Hall. Welcome to our webpage!
I qualified as a nurse over 25 years ago and trained at St Thomas' Hospital in London. My passion has always been the care of older people. On my first day on a ward, I met Prince Charles and he asked me what time my shift finished!
I am very proud to call myself a nurse. I have worked in the care home sector for over 20 years and have experience many changes – all for the better,
I have a Higher Diploma in Gerontology and a BSc (Hons) in Nursing Studies.
I have been a Registered Manager with the CQC for many years and achieved my Registered Manager's Award in 2008.
At Hilderstone Hill, we have developed a person-centred approach to care, so that the residents are at the centre of the services provided.
