Wendy McGowan

Senior General Manager

Hi, my name is Wendy, and I am the general manager here at Seaview House. Welcome to our website!

I am originally from England, and moved with my family to Scotland in 2006. I started my career in the healthcare sector at age 18 and worked as a carer in a nursing home. Throughout my nurse training I regularly worked in this sector and, as a qualified nurse, often supported care homes in their provision of care.

I qualified as a nurse in 1996 and worked in emergency mental health team throughout the first 10 years of my nursing career. In that time, I developed a collaborative leadership style, and later on worked as a team leader for a specialist crisis intervention team in Southport.

The most rewarding part of my job is the relationships I have developed with residents, their family members and the staff who help support the people who live here. I am delighted that, through our provision of person-centred care, we have developed a homely atmosphere and a place people like to live in.

Alin Pinzariu

Head of Unit - Girnigoe

I trained as a nurse in Romania and moved the Scotland and to Seaview over 10 years ago, working my way up from Staff Nurse to Head of Unit since that time. I am passionate about the work we do and strive each day to work with staff, residents and their families to ensure the best standard of care is achieved.
