Hi, my name is Gilliam, and I am the Acting General Manager here at Lochduhar. Welcome to our website!
I have been very fortunate to have had a career in nursing that has spanned both the NHS and the independent sector since qualifying as a registered nurse in 1989. I studied a BA in Nursing Studies in Glasgow from 1985-89 and then graduated with an MSc in Palliative Care in 2014 from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh.
Previous roles have involved working with older people, working within an acute surgical ward and, before joining Lochduhar, I spent working in a hospice as Head of Care, leading and managing staff to deliver palliative and end of life care to patients with life-limiting illnesses, and also supporting their families and carers.
I am a dedicated, qualified nurse and my real passion lies with ensuring every resident is treated with respect and dignity and the care they receive is of the highest standard, which reflects their individual needs.
I am responsible for effectively inspiring and leading the staff team to ensure the delivery of an excellent standard of care that promotes independence and dignity and positively enhances the lives of individual residents in our care.
