Meet the team

Our staff are what hold the home together. Each one of these team members are dedicated to providing high quality care and services to those we support, and ensuring that residents enjoy all aspects of life at our home. See below to meet some of our friendly faces:

Susanne Stevens

General Manager

Hi, my name is Susanne Stevens and I am the General Manager here at Werrington Lodge. Welcome to our website!

I have worked in care for over 12 years, with previous roles as a care assistant, nurse, deputy manager and, finally, manager. I have a wide range of knowledge and experience in both hospitals and care homes.

I am thrilled to be a part of a company that has an excellent reputation and ensures that care and compassion are paramount. Every resident has the right to be treated with respect and dignity and I am proud to be a part of an organisation that drives this and has such applaudable values and ethos.

I am proud that I pursued my dream of being a nurse; I am honoured to be in such a profession where I can care for people with compassion and dignity.

Tracey Murrell


Life before Barchester was a mixture of things for me; I have worked in payroll, HR and recruitment. I have also been an Events Manager, so my work life has been very varied. My personal life has had some recent struggles, however, I believe that those struggles have made me stronger and have shaped me into the person that I am today. I am looking forward to helping Werrington Lodge excel in as many ways as we can.
