Hi, my name is Karen, and I am the General Manager here at Kingsland House. Welcome to our website!
I have been a nurse for over 30 years and have worked both in the NHS and the private sector. A large part of my experience has been in palliative care and I have been lucky to have been able to run the inpatient unit at Phyllis Tuckwell hospice in Farnham, and worked as a Specialist community nurse for St Catharine’s Hospice in Crawley
I moved into management of nursing homes and was the manager of the first home to get an Outstanding rating from the CQC in Surrey. I love being a nurse and have learnt so much from the people I have met and cared for in the different settings that I have had the privilege to work in.
I have been involved in various projects with Surrey University looking at ethics in Health care, and with Skills for care. The Gold standard framework has also been something I have been involved with and have been able to use what I have learnt to benefit the wellbeing of residents and increase Quality of life.
I have worked at Kingsland since 2017 and really enjoy it here. I am an experienced nurse, with over 15 years in a wide variety of healthcare settings in both the UK and overseas, including the NHS, the voluntary sector, NGOs, the charity sector and now the private sector.
I have been a nurse since 2002 and have worked in many clinical fields of nursing, such as A&E, sexual health, aids work, elderly medicine and end of life care.
I enjoy working as a nurse because I am dedicated to improving the lives of others and supporting those in difficult times of their lives.
My name is Shirley Corteil and I am the Administrator here at Kingsland House. I have been here since it opened back in 1995, so I guess the length of service must say it all! There have been many changes over the years, but I can honestly say that there is never a dull moment working here!
Hi, my name is Theresa, and I have worked at Kingsland House since 2010. I have worked in the kitchen, in housekeeping, and now finally I have settled as an Activities Assistant. I love my job, as every day is a new adventure with the residents.

Hi, my name is Emily and I am an Administration Assistant here at Kingsland. I enjoy seeing new and old faces as they pass by in reception or for a coffee and a chat!

Hi, my name is George and I am the Deputy Chef here at Kingsland House. I am passionate about baking; I love making cakes and sweet treats.
I started working at Kingsland House in November 2015, originally as a Carer. I later became a part of the catering team, working as a Hostess, which was lovely, as I got to spend lots of time with residents. I am now Head of Housekeeping, and I love my job. The best part of being at Kingsland House is the staff and residents – they make this house a home.
Hi my name is Shanelle and I am a Senior care Assistant and training champion here at Kingsland House. I started here back in 2016 and I’m loving every minute. I have recently started an advanced carer training program so I can expand my knowledge and get more experience. One resident has even taught me how to knit!
‘’Hi my name is Sarah and I am new here at Kingsland House. I am the activities coordinator, while this is a new role for me I have over 32 years’ experience in the care industry. Ranging from care, maintenance and housekeeping. I can’t wait to meet everyone here at Kingsland House and introduce some fun activities with the help of the residents.’’
Hi my name is Amanda
I started what I didn't realise would become my career here at Kingsland House in July of 2000.
I achieved my Nvq 2 and 3 a few years after that to become a senior carer and at 10 years of being here I became a teamleader.
I have now qualified as a Care Practioner of which I am very proud.
I love my job and working here at Kingsland House. I'm very passionate about the care our residents receive and that they live a fulfilled life here.
Hi, my name is Gabi and I am the Maintenance Manager here at Kingsland.
Hi. I’m Lewis Corteil. I am the gardener at Kingsland House. We have gardens that completely surround the main building. We also have pathways which mean our residents can walk all around the garden safely. I enjoy working with some of the residents at Kingsland house who are actively involved in the garden including the organic vegetable patch.
