Lindsey Leatham

General Manager

Hi, my name is Lindsey and I am the General Manager here at Stamford Bridge. Welcome to our website!

Thank you for taking the time to look further into what Stamford Bridge Beaumont has to offer to you or your loved one. Here is an opportunity to look at some of our staff team in the home, who all play a vital role in day-to-day life. I have worked for the healthcare sector for approximately 27 years from being a support worker, to registered nurse and working in the NHS and private sector to registered manager in social care and now here at Stamford Bridge Beaumont. I feel honoured and privileged to have the opportunity to spend each day with your loved ones.

I have two grown up children, three grandsons and two cockapoo’s so life is full and busy and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love my role and what I do and I am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team that demonstrate a nurturing warm and compassionate approach.   The homes core objective is to promote a quality ethos centred person centred care, enabling and giving peace of mind to everyone we come into contact with.

Emma Smith

Deputy Manager

I have been working for Barchester since 2015. I qualified as a general nurse in 2004, and have worked as a nurse within the local community and hospitals in the area, and I am passionate about delivering the highest quality of care to those we support. There's never a dull day!

I consider myself to be extremely privileged to work with such wonderful people, full of humour with wonderful stories to tell. I know it’s a cliché, but we are like one big happy family—I love being here!

Heidi Gilbert

Activities Coordinator

Having worked in care for the last 10 years, I have experienced residential, nursing and home care as part of the care team, all of which have been rewarding and provided me with a great deal of knowledge and experience, my most recent posting was managing an independent living service in Leeds, following a move to York and having my little girl I wanted to have the opportunity to support residents to benefit from social stimulation, over the years I have seen how this can have a positive impact on the well-being of residents living in care setting.

My hobbies outside of work are walking in the Lake District and Scotland, I will look forward days walking in the local area with the residents and on those not so nice days being creative with crafts and flower arranging within the home.
