New manager installed
Forbes takes helm at Randolph Hill Nursing Homes
Hilary Forbes joins as manager at Fidra House, bringing with her more than four decades of experience working within the care sector.
After qualifying as a registered general nurse, she spent much of her early career in nursing and care management positions in Wales. In 2010 she moved to Scotland where she played a pivotal role driving forward Care Inspectorate ratings for homes she managed for Southern Cross and the Salvation Army.
Owen Edwards joins Randolph Hill in a newly created role of group recruitment manager, responsible for sourcing quality staff for the company’s six nursing homes across central Scotland. Owen has spent 12 years in recruitment, including several years working within the care sector for Newcross Healthcare Solutions and in his most recent role at Robinson Healthcare.
Commenting on the appointments, Randolph Hill managing director Peter McCormick said: “Hilary is an immensely experienced and passionate care professional who will bring real strength and depth to this key leadership role at Fidra House.
“Owen also takes on an important management role with responsibility for recruitment across the group. With a shortage of talent within the UK care sector his experience and knowledge will be essential in helping us continue to attract quality people to our homes throughout Scotland.”
