I attended Dartford Grammar School and qualified from St George’s Hospital Medical School in 1994. For the last 20 years, I have worked as a GP in Gravesend.
Over these last 20 years, I have seen the devastating effects which conditions such as dementia, stroke and loneliness can have on people and their families. But I have seen first hand patients receiving basic home care, and it is my belief that there is so much more which can be done to promote health and well being within the home environment.
My Vision for homecare
My vision is to train the carers not just to give the absolute best care, but also to mentally and physically stimulate our customers. For example, encourage our customers to sit in the garden to inhale fresh air, stimulate the mind and increase your Vitamin D levels.
This journey has led me to this point. To develop a Domiciliary Care Company that delivers high-quality preventative, pro-active care at home. This has paved the way for VitalityCare and the VitalityLifestyle programme, a service developed to enable you to live the life you would like to, with the care and support of the Vitality Home Health Team.
My grandfather passed away peacefully at home from lung cancer when I was 14 years old. It was the way he was helped emotionally, physically and spiritually by the palliative care team of nurses and carers that I knew that I wanted to become a nurse.
The proudest moment of my life came in 2003 when I received my diploma in nursing. I joined a community nursing team and after 8 years progressed to becoming a team leader.
I am thrilled to be part of the Vitality Home Health team. With our Vitality Care Givers and GP’s we can make a real difference with the dedicated care we will provide.

Obi - Therapy Dog
Obi is an 18 month old French Bull Dog. He lives with his partner Betsey in Greenhithe.
He spends his private life running around the garden with his family consisting of 2 children aged 7 and 10 years old. Obi enjoys peoples company, and is happiest being stroked, petted and spoilt by people who no longer have pets, or for those that would love a dog to accompany them for a short walk.
Obi brings a lot of joy to people, he is a sensitive dog, who appears to understand if people are uncomfortable, in pain or just want to play.
Megan visits me daily and is a wonderful, helpful young woman who supports me to start my day the way I choose to. She always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. I look forward to her arrival and I really don’t know what I would do without her, plus she makes a great cuppa!!
