I have been a registered nurse since 1990. I have worked in both the NHS and the private sector. As a General Manager, my aim is to ensure that, along with my team, we continue to deliver person-centred care to those we support, placing them at the heart of everything we do and meeting individual needs with the passion and commitment they deserve. I am passionate about setting and maintaining high standards of care with attention to detail.

James Sibthorpe

Deputy Manager

Hi, my name is James, and I am the Deputy Manager and a Senior Nurse. I have worked at Kingsland since 2017 and really enjoy it here.

I am an experienced Nurse, with over 15 years of varied experiences, both in the UK and overseas, in a wide variety of healthcare settings, including the NHS, the voluntary sector, NGOs, the charity sector and now the private sector.

I have been a Nurse since 2002 and have worked in many clinical fields of nursing, such as A&E, sexual health, aid work, elderly medicine and end of life care.

I enjoy working as a Nurse because I am dedicated to improving the lives of others and supporting those in difficult times of their lives.
