Duo lead new team at care home

A leading care home in Skelmersdale has made two senior appointments to lead it forward into the next phase of its development.


Vicky Sudworth has been promoted to general manager at Birch Green Care Home and Emma Kay becomes deputy manager to lead the 100-plus strong team.


With many years of experience in the NHS, Vicky will be developing a diverse range of services including nursing and personal care, specialist dementia care, mental health conditions and end of life care.


Emma also has wide experience as a qualified mental health nurse at Birch Green where she has helped to develop services for the last seven years. She is an award-winner in the Great British Care Awards North West in the Good Nurse category.


Vicky said: “Emma and I relish the opportunity to develop the wide range of services we offer at Birch Green to make sure we are serving the needs of the local community.


“As an organisation, we want to provide the very best quality of care possible and to that end we commit a lot of time and resource in the quality of training of our staff at all levels and ultimately how that benefits our residents.”


Birch Green Care Home is part of the award-winning Springhill Care Group, which also operates homes in Accrington and Bristol.


Recently, inspectors from the industry’s watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) made particular note of the commitment and quality of staff and the training they receive at Birch Green in awarding the home a ‘good’ rating.


All areas of the home, part of the Springhill Care Group, were examined, from the safety of the service to how it is led, with inspectors looking at everything from how medicines are stored to the quality of day-to-day activities.
