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.

Hello I'm Nella, I have worked for Barchester for over a year now and recently became the Admin Assisstant here at Hugh Myddelton House
My name is Phyllis Johns, I am the Resident Ambassador here at Hugh Myddelton. I moved here 4 years ago since then part of my role as Resident Ambassador is to help make the feelings of my fellow residents known to management through residents meetings and have input into the homes daily activities.
Hi, my name is Michelle and I am the Hairdresser here at Hugh Myddelton. I have been working in various care homes as a hairdresser for over 25 years and I have been coming to Hugh Myddelton since 2005.
I find that residents who come for regular salon visits do reignite sensory cues. Sessions with the Hairdresser provide sensory cues as well. Residents come in for a haircut, styling or perm and they leave with memories of their young, vibrant and active years. Every resident who comes into the salon can expect emotional support and a tea and biscuit break filled with laughter.
I am happy to part of the team in this lovely home.
