Jamie Stubbs – Home Manager
Jamie qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1995 and worked on a General Surgical ward at the Alexander Hospital in Redditch. This position provided him with a solid grounding in surgical nursing and allowed him to consolidate the training that he had received as a student nurse.
He then joined the Royal Air Force as a qualified nurse in December 1995 and was posted to the Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport, Hampshire, where he stayed for 5 years. At this hospital he worked within the field of Ear, Nose and Throat as well as Head and Neck surgery and gained a specialist qualification in this field following a six-month period of study at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London.
Jamie was then posted to The Princess Mary’s Hospital, RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus in 2001 where he worked on a general surgical and medical ward and then onto School of Technical Training at RAF Cosford in 2004, where he worked as a Practice Nurse with the Station Medical Centre at RAF Cosford. This experience enabled him to gain further qualifications in relation to working within a Regional Primary Health Care Centre and setting.
Following successful completion of his initial officer training at Royal Air Force College Cranwell in 2007, Jamie was posted to the Joint Force Command Headquarters, Brunssum in the Netherlands. His first appointment as a Commissioned Officer was that of the Officer Commanding the British Medical Centre. This responsibility ensured that all British personnel and their families that were deployed to the NATO HQ were able to receive a high-quality Primary Health Care Service.
Jamie’s military career has seen him deployed on military Operations to Bosnia, Iraq and the Falkland Islands. He has also undertaken Aeromedical Evacuation missions from Kosovo in early 2000.
Jamie returned from the Netherlands back to the Station Medical Centre at RAF Cosford in 2011 as the Principal Nursing Officer. He remained within this position until he retired from the RAF in 2014 following a successful and rewarding career.
Jamie’s first civilian appointment was as a Home Manager in January 2015. Jamie found that the skills and experience – both medical and leadership – that he learned through his military career had been highly transferable into the adult Social Care Sector. They have allowed him to drive quality and improvement in a bid to push for a level of service that he considers to be excellent.
Jamie has a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management and a BA (Hons) in Leadership and Management. He has studied and holds the NEBOSH National Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, NEBOSH National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management and National Certificate in Environmental Management. He is a member of the Chartered Management Institute (MCMI) and is a Chartered Manager (CMgr).
“I am delighted to have been appointed as the Home Manager of Cleobury Hills Nursing Home. Being the first home manager of a brand-new care home has given me a unique opportunity to be instrumental in building a loving caring service from scratch that puts the clients fully at the centre of attention. They will all receive the best, tailor made, person centred service possible. I am also looking forward to building and a high performing team.
Jamie is married to his wife Jayne and has two teenage children, Hollie and Thomas as well as their dog Tilly! Jamie’s hobbies include playing guitar, listening to music, walking and reading.
