Hi, my name is Hugo, and I am the General Manager here at Westgate House. Welcome to our website!
I qualified as a nurse in Portugal and developed a diverse clinical background, namely in intensive care.
Upon moving to the UK in 2015, I developed a true passion for palliative care and obtaining great outcomes in difficult situations.
My management career started in 2017, having experience in both residential and nursing settings.
I am delighted to work with the residents, their families and staff here at Westgate House.
