Lisa Hall

Deputy Manager

My name is Lisa Hall and I am the Deputy Manager here at Laurel Bank. Welcome to our website!

I have worked within the healthcare sector for over 25 years in a vast variety of clinical roles, beginning my career as a healthcare support worker and working my way up to the role of Registered General Nurse, having successfully gained my NMC registration in 2011.

In the past, I have gained experience working for the Lancashire Care Foundation Trust as a district nurse, where I gained much of the experience and clinical knowledge I hold today. My passion and drive within the healthcare sector enables me to support and provide the most current and up-to-date care and support at Laurel Bank.

I am also a qualified nurse mentor, working closely with the local universities to support student nurses in their professional development.
