Sam Antwi-Marful

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sam, and I am the General Manager here at Hugh Myddelton House. Welcome to our website!

Prior to joining Barchester, I worked in the NHS for over 20 years, where I held various clinical and managerial positions. In 1996 I graduated from Brunel University with a Masters in Counselling and focused on clinical interventions for clients with depression and anxiety. Since then, I have combined a strong, hands-on, direct care approach with my managerial responsibilities.

In 2014, I left the NHS as Deputy Director for Clinical Services Delivery in the Behavioural and Developmental Clinical Academic Group at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, where I led a number of initiatives in clinical interventions, policy and procedures in Forensic Psychiatry. In August 2014, I was appointed as the Hospital Director at Alpha Hospital Woking (later Cygnet Woking Hospital), a CAMHS and Adult secure services.

As a Registered Nurse and a General Manager, I am passionate about delivering high-quality care to those we support, and I enjoy working within a team that can make such a positive difference to the lives of residents and those we work with.
