James Stubbs BA (Hons) DipHE RN(A) CMgr MCMI GCGI

General Manager

Welcome to Mount House's website; my name is James Stubbs and I am the General Manager here.

I trained with the NHS and qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1995. My first position as a newly qualified staff nurse was working on a General Surgical ward at the Alexander Hospital Redditch. Looking for a new challenge I joined the Royal Air Force as a qualified nurse in 1995. Following successful completion of basic training at RAF Halton, I was posted to Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport.

Between 1995 and 2008 I spent time in various posts across the world delivering primary health care services, this included the Balkans, Falkland Islands, Cyprus and Iraq. I graduated as Flight Lieutenant Nursing Officer in late 2008 and from then I was posted to NATO Joint Force Command Headquarters in the Netherlands. I retired from the RAF in December 2014.

The RAF enabled me to gain a BA (Hons) in Leadership and Management as well as qualify myself in Health and Safety. I currently hold the National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, National General Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management and a Certificate in Environmental Management.

I commenced my position as General Manager here at Mount House in 2017. I have found that a lot of my military skills have been highly transferrable and have eased my transition into adult social care. I am a highly focused and driven individual who aims to deliver excellence. I am thoroughly enjoying my new role and the diverse challenges that it has to offer. I aim to provide a loving home that cares for all the residents and their families. I have an open door policy for residents’ relatives and staff, and actively encourage anybody to engage with me with their concerns or suggestions.

Emily Calvert

Activities Coordinator

My name is Emily and I have worked at Mount House for just under two years, I previously worked within Events Management in large pharmaceutical events and conventions across the country and then within the care sector. Both of which I feel have provided with me with a skill set which enables me to provide a broad ranging activity programme within Mount House for all of our residents. This is based primarily around the wants and needs of our residents but also by introducing a varied programme of musical entertainment, holistic therapies and social events within the home and out in the local community. 

I love my job, and enjoy interacting with people on a daily basis as well as building relationships with the individuals whom live at the home. And this prompts me to work very hard with my team to ensure that they receive the best care possible.
