Care homes and elderly care from Barchester Healthcare

Melissa Harker

Senior General Manager

Welcome to Newlands, my name is Melissa and I am the Senior General Manager here.

I have been a qualified RNLD since 2007 and previously worked within the NHS in various roles prior to joining Barchester Healthcare in 2012 as the Head of Unit for the specialist support unit; this was all before being promoted to the General Manager of Newlands Care Centre. Since joining Barchester in 2012, myself, along with the staff team, have developed and are a committed and dedicated workforce that aims to deliver the best quality person-centred care. We have relationships with not only the residents, but their family and friends too; we are very much a home away from home.
