Hi, my name is Nigel and I am General Manager here at Lanercost. Welcome to our website!
Thank you for taking the time to look further into what we have to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life.
I have been fortunate in my career to succeed in becoming a dual qualified Registered Mental and Registered General Nurse and to have worked within both Local Authority and NHS services. My background has been working in community based services as a Community Psychiatric Nurse and also a Care Manager. It is interesting that I have now reached a period in my career that I am committed to providing high quality care within a nursing home setting in contrast to creating care packages to enable service users to remain supported outside of residential care settings.
I have become an experienced Registered Manager in social care since 2015 choosing to work in care homes that were under-performing and addressing issues directly. I am approachable and fully embrace good ideas, no matter who suggests them for the benefit of service users. Whilst I cannot promise to solve every problem that arises be assured I will listen and try my best and I look forward to welcoming you to our home.Get in touch Meet my team
