Tom has worked in several roles in the Health and Social Care sector over the past 32 years encompassing NHS, Private Equity and Charity organisations.
He gained a passion for working in care delivery in 1986, working as a volunteer in a care of the elderly setting, which inspired him to go on and complete his nurse training, qualifying as a Registered General Nurse in 1990.
He then went on to work as a staff nurse in intensive care, but was drawn back to his first love, elderly care. He left the NHS and progressed into a career within the independent care sector, starting as a Deputy Home Manager. Tom came up through the ranks to the position of Operations Director, working across both private equity providers and two charity care providers.
He joined Fairhome Care PLC in December 2017, with extensive experience in operating many care facilities both in respect of financial performance and quality. His desire to move from an extensive career of operational roles to take on the position of Group Quality & Compliance Director was very much based on his grass roots passion for quality care. He believes this is the fundamental principal behind everything we do in care, whether it is caring for the elderly, younger people with mental health or learning needs and physical disability. Just as important, caring for those we work with.
