Hi, my name is Patrick and I am the General Manager here at Dudwell St Mary. Welcome to our website!
I qualified as a nurse at Kent and Canterbury Hospital in 1988 and spent the next 27 years working in various roles in hospitals looking after acutely ill patients. My journey in the NHS saw me start as a Staff Nurse in General Medicine, moving on to work in the following years in cardiology, renal care, emergency care and care of the elderly. In the latter stages of my NHS career as a Senior Manager, I focused on the quality of care that was delivered, ensuring that patients received excellent person-centred support.
I left the NHS in 2015 and, in the following years, led two nursing homes to achieving ‘Good’ ratings with the CQC. At the centre of everything I have done is the solid belief that residents deserve the very best we can give, in all aspects of their care, and that this is delivered by a team that is both big hearted and experienced.
I am excited to be working with a company who lead the field in the care of older people. I want to ensure that all my residents live fulfilled and enjoyable lives in our care. Barchester provides a huge platform to achieve the very best care that can be given.
