Meet The Manager

Eileen Allison is Manager at Halliwell.

Eileen is a Registered General Nurse with 30 years of experience mostly in the Acute Care Sector working in Respiratory, Cardiology and ITU. Prior to taking over as the General Manager at Halliwell she was working as a Ward Manager on an Acute Elderly Care Ward at Tunbridge Wells Hospital. This ward was noted to be exemplary with the Care Quality Commission highlighting her innovation in Dementia Care. This post fired her passion for providing high standards of elderly care but always delivered with kindness and compassion.  Eileen left the NHS in 2015 to take over as the Clinical Care Manager (Deputy Manager) at Halliwell. Although only in post as the General Manager since July 2019 Eileen has created a strong team ethic with the CQC rating the Home as “Good” overall and “Outstanding” for being Responsive. The Home has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and feedback from Residents and Relatives is excellent.
