Getting to know Jayne Wood.
Director of Nursing & Registered Manager Jayne Wood’s nursing management career spans over 30 years. Following a successful interview process with the CQC, Jayne moved from Acting Registered Manager to formal Registered Manager in June 2021.
Jayne began her career as an eye nurse in Wolverhampton before becoming a fully qualified nurse. In the mid-80s, Jayne worked as a nurse at The Manor House, becoming Matron in 1988. Jayne moved on from the Manor House to spend the next 25 years in nursing and medical management in both the NHS and private sector. Jayne created and delivered training programmes for Derby Hospital and worked across the country, running audits and troubleshooting at numerous care homes, identifying areas of improvement to help them become the best they could be.

Jayne has already been instrumental in improving relationships with GPs to ensure we obtain all required records to have a thorough medical history of all new residents.
