Our highly trained, experienced staff team at Heathcotes Wigston are led by experienced Registered Manager, Emma Bugby who has worked for Heathcotes for a number of years, previously heading up the team at Heathcotes Oadby.  The team have worked tirelessly to create a warm, homely environment for the people who use the service.

Our official opening day on Wednesday 15 May was a proud moment, as we opened our doors for the first time to families, professionals and other stakeholders.  The exceptionally high standard of the renovation was a hot topic on the day, as was the homely atmosphere.  The unfaltering dedication shown by all the staff involved, in turning the house into an exceptional home for the people that use our services, is evident throughout and drew a number of comments on the day.

Tracy Mason, Operations Manager said, "Heathcotes Wigston is stunning; Emma and her team have worked exceptionally hard, going above and beyond by investing a great deal of time adding personal touches that give the house a real homely feeling.  The service has created a great deal of interest already and vacancies are already being filled - and it's no surprise; with the beautiful surroundings and such a dedicated staff team, Heathcotes Wigston really is another exceptional Heathcotes service that we are all very proud of".
