Foote takes up development role at Meallmore
Scottish care provider, Meallmore has promoted Carol-Anne Foote to the newly-created role of commissioning and business development manager.
The new position will see Ms Foote working with the operations team to develop the company’s portfolio of facilities providing person-centred care and support, while also expanding the care offering across Scotland in existing care homes and new developments.
