Management & Staff

The day to day operation of the Home is the responsibility of the Care Manager. Burnfield is managed by Ms Sandra Falconer, a qualified RGN.

In addition to the registered Care Manager, the Home employs Registered Nurses, Senior Support Workers / Support Workers (full-time / part-time), a Catering Team, Housekeeping staff and a full-time maintenance person. A Registered Nurse is always on duty, 24 hours a day. Care staff are on duty throughout the night, supervised by a member of the nursing team.

All staff receive training in Newark Care’s philosophy and values. Our arrangements for staff recruitment, training and supervision accord with the latest Government guidance and reflect best practice.

All the Shift Managers and Assistant Shift Managers hold either RGN / RMN qualifications. Over 75% of our care staff hold a formal qualification in Health & Social Care, considerably more than stipulated by the local authority.

All qualified nurses must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in order to practice – this is a mandatory requirement. All Support Workers are required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) and hold the relevant SVQ qualifications as required by the Scottish Government.
