Meet The Manager

Dianne Peters is General Manager at Mallard Court.

I qualified as an RGN in 1988 and started my nursing career as both a staff nurse and a ward sister. I joined the private sector in 1993 and have managed domiciliary care and care homes across the north of England in both a general manager and regional manager capacity.

I love being a part of Barchester's corporate and professional world, where quality matters, and staff work their hardest to deliver high quality care to those they support.
