West is the best for new Gorseway Park Retirement Village manager Janice

Published: Friday 18th June 2021

We’re delighted to welcome Janice West as the new Registered Manager at our Gorseway Park Retirement Village on Hayling Island.

Registered General Nurse Janice brings with her over 20 years of skills, knowledge and experience in health and complex social care settings.

In previous roles Janice has managed care and nursing homes, carried out quality and compliance management roles and worked at Winchester Hospital with the NHS.

Janice’s focus will be to bring leadership to the dedicated team at Gorseway Park Retirement Village, which includes independent living flats, residential care accommodation in a traditional manor house, and a purpose built nursing home.

Gorseway Park is operated by leading care independent provider Agincare, which delivers high quality care at over 20 homes nationwide.

Janice, originally from Bishop’s Waltham but now living in Portsmouth, said:

I’m delighted to join the team at Gorseway Park Retirement Village on lovely Hayling Island.

The manager’s role was recommended to me; and I was immediately attracted to it as soon as I saw the stunning grounds and discovered the impressive range of facilities at Gorseway Park.

The retirement village provides the complete package from independent living accommodation right through to nursing care, so the role should bring lots of variety for me to get my teeth into.

Janice was recently introduced at a business breakfast at Gorseway, in the first of a series of networking events the team plan to host to build relationships with the local health and social care community.

Agincare Chief Operating Officer Tim Buckley said:

Janice is a very well respected care professional and I’m excited to welcome her to Gorseway Park Retirement Village.

Janice brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, and I’m sure that she will prove to be an outstanding success at Gorseway Park, and a tremendous asset to Agincare.
