Karen Williams

General Manager

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.
