Meet our new Woodland Grove Care Home Manager Hazel McGwyne

Welcome to Hazel McGwyne, our new Registered Home Manager at Woodland Grove care home, Loughton.

Hazel is a qualified Registered Nurse and has previously worked in Health Organisations in the UK and abroad, across acute, community, private and charity organisations. Hazel’s speciality is cardiology and quality assurance and she helped steer her last organisation to CQC Outstanding in 2016.

Speaking about her new role at Woodland Grove care home, Hazel said: “I feel very privileged to be the Home Manager here at Woodland Grove. My role involves supporting the unit managers, designing clear governance and quality structure and filling vacancy gaps with the right calibre of staff. I live very close to the home and I enjoy walking to work and being around our staff and residents each day.”

“I have had a brilliant first month here at Woodland Grove care home. I was blown over by the lively and upbeat atmosphere of the home, especially the environment in the Bistro where there is always something going on. The staff are very caring and the residents are jolly, no two days here are ever the same which is great”

Hazel’s first priorities have been to get to know her staff, continue to build strong teams throughout the care home and enjoy her new role.
