Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Steve Edgar

General Manager

Hi, my name is Steve Edgar and I am the General Manager here at Mulberry Court. 

I qualified as a Registered Mental Nurse (RMN) in 1991 and I have spent most of my working life in the public sector. I worked for 20 years in a crisis intervention service, first as a counsellor and then as the manager.

In 2011 I accepted my first position in the independent sector, managing a small nursing home for adults with enduring mental health problems in Bradford, as well as providing arms-length management support to three related services in the Leeds and Bradford areas.

Since then I have gone on to manage an older person’s nursing and residential home in Bradford and, up until joining Barchester, I was the manager of a specialised dementia unit in Harrogate.
