Our Team

Nigel Newman - Senior Sales Advisor

Our friendly, qualified and experienced maintenance engineer and salesperson, Nigel, works for Livewell Independence Centre at Mount Gould Hospital. He has been in the trade now for over 30 years, repairing, servicing and selling mobility equipment.

If you have a piece of mobility equipment like a scooter, power-chair, riser/recliner or even a wheelchair or walker, Nigel can service or repair it for you at a reasonable price.

He also carries out home visits so there is no need to stress in trying to find someone qualified. With my years of service and experience, I am happy to provide you with information on new products and demonstrate if needed.

 

Julie Turner - Sales Advisor

For the past 20 years, Julie has been the Sales Advisor at the Livewell Independence Centre, managing all aspects of the day to day running of the shop on site at Mount Gould Hospital. In that time, she gained NVQ’s in business administration, customer service and retail management. Her experience within the mobility sector began within the CES (Community Equipment Service), delivering and fitting equipment in client’s homes, going on to become a Clerical Assistant before my present role of Sales Advisor.

Julie has been filming videos for our Facebook page, focussing on the equipment we sell. Many of you may be aware she has an alter ego on a Friday as she becomes DJ Jules on Radio Livewell at the Independence Centre setting a weekly competition.

Originally, Julie worked in the catering sector, obtaining several qualifications including becoming a fully qualified Chef and Silver Service Waitress. While at college, she won the Inter College Challenge Trophy and became a winner in Class 3 Patisserie Francaises at the South West Hotel & Catering Exhibition. She then went on to join the Royal Air Force as a Stewardess, later becoming a Senior Aircraftswomen.

In her spare time, Julie enjoy long walks with her Golden Retriever, Bentley.
