Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale has appointed a new deputy general manager as the home develops its range of services.
With many years of experience in the NHS as a fully qualified nurse, Vicky Sudworth has joined the team to help develop services to the local community including nursing and personal care, specialist dementia care, learning disabilities and mental health conditions.
She said: “I’m hugely excited to be joining Birch Green at this time as we understand further the needs of the local community and how we can offer them quality of services locally that live up to the vision and values of the company. My dad ran care homes for many years so I have always been around them and know what needs to be done to make a happy home.”
Vicky moves to Birch Green from her role working as a nurse in the Accident and Emergency department at Wigan Royal Albert Edward Infirmary.
Phillippa McGrath, manager of Birch Green Care Home, said: “Vicky brings a wealth of experience from the nursing sector and a great positive attitude as we move forward which will help us as we further develop our services to even higher levels for now and the longer term.”
Birch Green Care Home is part of the award-winning Springhill Care Group, which also operates homes in Accrington and Bristol offering a wide range of high quality long-term personalised care and support for adults and older people, including those requiring nursing care, specialist dementia care and specialist end of life care and other complex healthcare needs.
