Mark Chakravarti

Hi, my name is Mark, and I am the General Manager. Welcome to the website!

I have worked in the healthcare sector since 2015, in both public and independent services. As an experienced General Manager, I am extremely passionate about delivering exceptional, person-centred care to residents and ensuring the highest standards of support. Residents should have the opportunity to live their lives to the fullest. I thoroughly enjoy working with residents, their loved ones and the staff team here at Epsom Beaumont.

I am excited to leverage my current skills on a wider basis here at Barchester. This company has a good reputation for delivering high quality care and I love working with my team to achieve the Barchester goals.

I am very proud of my career achievements and establishing myself in a very complex and compliance-driven industry.
