Carole Christmas

General Manager

Hi, my name is Carole, and I am the Acting General Manager here at North Park. Welcome to our website!

My career in nursing began when I was 4 years old, after I read the 'The Nurse' and decided that that was what I was going to do. That dream came true in 1977 when I qualified as an SRN.

My experience as a nurse is varied and long-reaching; I have experience working in both care homes and for the NHS. I have worked as a midwife, with young disabled persons, supported older people, provided palliative care and looked after people living with dementia.
