Meet The Manager

Hazel McGwyne is Manager at Woodland Grove.

Welcome to Woodland Grove Care Home. I joined Woodland Grove in July 2018 and I feel very privileged to be the Registered General Manager here.

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1987. My career so far has involved working both in Health Organisations in the UK and abroad, across acute, community, private and charity organisations. My speciality is Cardiology and Quality Assurance.  I helped steer my last organisation to CQC Outstanding in 2016.

When I began my role here, I immediately loved the warm friendly, atmosphere of the home and the buzz of the activities taking place in the Bistro, and felt I needed to work here. I have enjoyed every minute since and feel every day that I am coming to my second home, with that in mind I strive to add quality and joy to everything the home provides.
