Welcome to the Westergate House website, my name is Paul and I am the General Manager here.
I have over 25 years experience within the healthcare profession, working in the NHS, prior to moving to the private healthcare sector in 1996. Having joined Barchester Healthcare in 2005, I have been the General Manager here at Westergate House for many years. During this time we have built a strong team that continually strives for excellence and to improve the service we offer to our residents.
The quality of the delivery of person centred care is paramount in my philosophy to create a home where I would be happy to be a resident. I feel passionately about Westergate and together with my team, we are committed to making a difference for our residents, supporting individuals in everyday successes.
We have our own set of values: ‘to promote an inclusive, diverse culture where our residents are known and respected as individuals; to cultivate a thriving, happy environment where individuals feel safe to enjoy everyday life, both within the home and as part of our wider community.’
We never lose sight of the fact that residents don’t live in our work place - we work in their home!Get in touch Meet my team
