We are delighted to introduce you to Michelle Pritchard, the new Service Manager at Lammas Lodge.
With over 15 years’ experience in social care, Michelle originally started as a Support Worker and became a Service Manager six years ago.
Michelle joined the Priory Group in 2015 and worked in the Forest of Dean services as a Manager before moving over to Lammas Lodge in Herefordshire - Michelle’s home county.
Michelle has multi-site experience, helping people with learning disabilities, mental health and physical disabilities. Working with people who have autism has always been Michelle’s passion, as well as putting her residents at the heart of the service. Michelle has a person-centred approach at Lammas Lodge and each individual’s needs are at the forefront of the service.
Michelle believes in leading her team with a hands-on approach and a supportive environment. Staff recently commented on Michelle’s leadership during the CQC inspection: "She (manager) is rolling her sleeves up and getting things done, rather than sitting in an ivory tower."
Michelle is looking forward to the exciting times ahead at Lammas Lodge.
