An overview of our team and their roles
Hello, I am Karen Spooner, and I am a qualified learning disability nurse (RNLD). I have worked in the care industry for 20 years, and for 13 of these I have been a nurse.
In 2018 I joined Bridge, Burton and Trent Court care home as Matron. The role of Matron in many organisations has been replaced by role such as a clinical nursing manager.
We hope that in reviving the Matron role to bring nursing management back to the floor and enhanced the direct care of the people we support.
