Manager's quote

Hi, my name is Kirsty and I am the General Manager here at Hurstwood View.

I began my career in the care industry in 1997, working in a small private care home for 17 years, which I enjoyed every day. I provided individualised care, support, social interaction, comfort & compassion to residents.

In 2003, I decided to study Nursing at Brighton University, as it had been my ambition since an early age. I continued to work at the care home during evenings & weekends, throughout my training, and received my nursing qualification in 2006. Becoming a nurse gave me such fulfillment, along with a great responsibility, which made me extremely proud about what I do.

I joined Hurstwood View in 2012 – and that is where my journey at Barchester began.

I love to spend time with my family & friends and I also enjoy travelling. I played football for 15 years in a woman’s team, but I’ve hung the boots up now!
