“I now want to look at everything with a critical eye, bringing my experience from across the care industry to see how we can make big and small improvements and challenge ourselves to aim for an outstanding status, which I know we are capable of.”
Joining Hanro is new head of care, Alice Chapman from Beccles, who comes from Healthcare Homes’ The White House where she worked as senior care assistant.
