Having commenced a fortnight ago, I have been hugely impressed with the attitude and approach of everyone here, from the Chief Executive to care assistants, who really care about getting things right for the people living and working in Barchester homes and hospitals. I am looking forward to working with the team to ensure that Barchester remains a leading provider of quality care, the best employer in its sector and an innovator in care delivery.”
