Meet The Manager

Lesley Andrew is General Manager at Wandsworth Common Care Home.

With 40 years’ experience in nursing and social care management, I am delighted to be able to join the Wandsworth Common team as General Manager. Working as a General Manager and Regional Director for another care provider, I was the first in my organisation to receive an Outstanding rating with the Care Quality Commission. I went on to receive Outstanding ratings for two other homes.

This home's dedication to offering luxury living with exceptional care is a vision shared by me. I am excited about bringing a diverse and inclusive team together that is committed to delivering exceptional care to our residents, welcoming the community into our home and delivering person-centred care in a 5-star setting.

I believe that being part of something so special from the very start is a true privilege and I relish the opportunity to deliver exceptional person-centred care in a ground-breaking environment.
