Lynsey Wilson Director of White Cross Care Ltd.
As a registered nurse with 23 years experience in health care I have a wealth of experience in both the NHS and private sector. I worked in the NHS for 19 years in both the acute sector and primary care, 7 of which as a registered district nursing sister.
In 2010, I decided to work in the private sector as a nursing home manager. This move was motivated by a desire to work to promote high standards of care in this sector. During this time I was promoted to a senior management level, where part of my duty was to oversee and work to improve the quality of care the company provided. This experience equipped me with the knowledge that in order to achieve the highest standards of care, you must invest in your staff who deliver the care. I decided the only way to ensure this was to start my own care agency. At White Cross Care, team members are only selected if they share our ethos, that is to be caring, compassionate and willing to learn. In addition at White Cross Care team members are rewarded for their achievements making it an exceptional company.
