If you are a quality Nurse qualified Manager driven with ambition, we’d love to hear from you.

Our care home, Sherwood House, is seeking an exceptional leader.  Our vision is to find a like-minded individual who shares our values in striving to become the best, develop high quality nurturing care and inclusive team working.  Sherwood House Care Home caters for the frail elderly, those with dementia and will soon be expanding to receive nursing residents following a 24 month development project.  Sherwood House is currently registered for 35 beds (expanding to 65).
