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:
Hi, my name is Gail and I am the General Manager here at The Wingfield. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.
I have been a registered nurse for over 30 years, completing my nurse training at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. I have previous experience working mainly with the elderly and I was a palliative care sister in the community.
Previously, I have worked at Bupa and Four Seasons, before joining Barchester. I am passionate about ensuring that the people we care for are happy, safe and living their life to the full.
Hi, my name is Natalie and I am the Deputy Manager here at Wingfield. I thoroughly enjoy my role, and love the family here at Wingfield. I am always around, so please do stop me and say hello! I am here not only to support residents and their families, but also to support our team here at Wingfield.
I am a Head of Unit here at Wingfield. I am passionate about the care we provide here and have always felt passionate about working with the elderly. I take pride in the fact that I am a Dementia Friend and therefore I can spread my knowledge to friends, colleagues and those in the community.
Hi, I am Michele and I am the Administrator here at Wingfield. I run the admin office and have been working here since May 2018. My door is always open!
Hi, my name is Helena and I’m the Activities Coordinator here at The Wingfield. My role is to provide stimulating and motivational activities for residents. Getting to know those we support and creating tailored activities programmes for them is extremely rewarding. We focus on maximising everyone’s wellbeing, independence and social engagement, as well as providing varied activities to suit all.
I have over 35 years of catering knowledge. I learnt my craft in the RAF cooking for any number of personnel, from 4 to over 2000 all around the world in kitchens, tents and aircraft and once in a submarine. Since leaving the armed forces, I have gained further experience in many catering roles and arenas before landing (RAF reference there) at The Wingfield at the beginning of 2018.
I very much enjoy leading the catering team here in providing an excellent food service to our residents and visitors, from breakfast through to high tea. Residents, their families and visitors all especially enjoy the varied homemade cakes on offer daily, which is very gratifying to me, as I am passionate about baking.
Hi, my name is Tracey Page, I have been working for Barchester now for 3 years and was the Head of Housekeeping, I was very hands on alongside the maintenance team and enjoyed doing particular tasks, so when I was approached by my manager to be the Head of Maintenance I jumped at the chance. I started my role on the 24th June and I wish to continue to improve the home for the future.
I have recently just started at The Wingfield. I worked here 9 years ago as a Hostess and Admin Assistant and now I am back as Head Housekeeper. I was Head Housekeeper for another care home previously and I also ran my own cleaning company.
I strive to keep improving the standards and making the home a clean and presentable place to live, work and visit for all.
