Our Team

Our Team Circle

NG Healthcare has a full time on-site Director of Clinical Services who is a registered nurse and understands, guides and leads the whole team.

We have over 30 registered nurses from all nursing disciplines which enables us to provide clinical care and support across NG Healthcare. Our nursing staff come from a wide range of clinical backgrounds including General Nursing, Psychiatric and Learning Disability. Each of the 5 units has at least one Registered Nurse on duty 24 hours per day. This not only aids the delivery of services of each units, but it brings a wealth of experience and expertise we share on site.

Each unit has a Unit Manager who is part of the duty rota, and works to guide the whole team. We are now proud to be part of the new innovation in providing trained Nurse Support Workers on each unit. Our Nurse Support Workers are trained here on site and develop their skills in an active learning process on the units. The Nurse Support Workers and Senior Carers direct and guide our Carers.

Our units are housed in separate independent, purpose built facilities; Selwyn House, New House and Mayfield. All our units are within close proximity to each other and share our on site staff and training facilities.

GP Circle

A Retained General Practitioner

We go much further than the requirement to register clients with a local GP practice. We have a retained General Practitioner which ensures regular provision of medical advice as a matter of course. This enables us to ensure that a proactive and caring approach is maintained with both our own staff and that of the G.P. We have a ward round style visit every Tuesday and Thursday and with the G.P’s surgery being less than a mile from the centre it allows urgent assessments/consultations to be carried out between these times more accessibly.

More details about the G.P. Surgery itself can be found at:

Training Circle Training

We are proud to invest in our staff here at NG Healthcare and have invested in a purpose built Training Centre. We provide a large number of training sessions in house by qualified ‘Train the Trainers’ and currently are accredited with Staffordshire County Coucil to provide Safeguarding Training to both our own and other care home staff. Where required, external Training is brought in and the Training Manager has a dedicated budget to enable the best quality training can be commissioned and provided.

We have a number of Carers and Care Supervisors studying with Wolverhampton University at The Douglas Macmillian Training Centre in Palliative Care Communication.

All carers have to have a minimum of or be working towards NVQ level 2 and we work with Acacia Training in this area and have assessors visit and work with the carers here onsite to ensure ALL training is fully in context with equipment and resident groups the carers will be working with each and every day.

Physio Circle

External Professional Support

We can offer our residents either through the NHS or if they prefer to purchase private services; Chiropody, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Podiatry and a full range of GP services.

Retained Physiotherapist

Lynn Stopani MCSP Cert Ed PGD Man

Lynn trained at Glasgow Royal Infirmary School of Physiotherapy and has nearly 40 years full time experience in Physiotherapy, both clinically and managerially.

Lynn has specialised in all areas of Physiotherapy practice including General and Community Hospitals, Community Clinics, home environments, schools and additionally within the private sector and insurance sectors.

Lynn’s practice work involves assessment of patient’s physical needs giving professional advice recommendations and providing treatment.

Treatment can combine electrotherapy (ultrasound and interferential), joint mobilisation, acupuncture, exercises (active and passive stretching and general mobility), providing Physiotherapy techniques and treatments to people with neurological disorders and hydrotherapy.

Physiotherapy is either costed within the weekly fees when the placement is commissioned or can be added onto a package or purchased privately via the main office. We liaise closely with the local NHS Rehabilitation Team based at the Hayward Hospital and continue to review when Registered Physiotherapy input is required and when it can be carried out by generic care staff as part of the careplan and Registered Physiotherapy used to monitor and review as and when identified.
