Flagship development creates 100 jobs in Northumberland

A former cattle auction site has been transformed into a luxury assisted living scheme which will provide a home to 73 residents and employment for up to 100 people.

Construction on the £7 million scheme at Ponteland in Northumberland is almost complete and operators Crown Care are now recruiting nursing staff ahead of its opening in the autumn, paying above the living wage of £7.25 an hour.

The Royal Hampton is a 73-bed home providing residential, nursing and dementia care; two three-bedded bungalows and four three-bedded town houses with associated car parking, service amenities and garden area.

Wendy Conn, Crown Care’s managing director of healthcare said: “The Royal Hampton really will be a care centre with the wow factor – it is the jewel in our crown. We are looking to deliver the best quality environment the region has to offer while providing the highest possible standards of care to ensure those who come to live here or stay with us for a short time get the care, attention and lifestyle they deserve.”
