Meet our senior team

Although this page lists only our trustees and senior team, Nightingale Hammerson is a true team involving every single person who works for us, volunteers for us or, most important of all, uses our services.

To the residents and their families, it’s the staff who provide the care every hour of every day that make Nightingale Hammerson what it is, and we owe them a huge debt of thanks for their caring professionalism, dedication and commitment.
