Christina Walsh

Chief Operating Officer

Chris qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1990 and spent several years working in a variety of residential services before moving to work specifically in learning disability, autism, and mental health. As her career progressed, Chris began working in neuro rehabilitation services that delivered both acute and slow stream rehabilitation from hospitals through to community care. 

We provided both rehabilitation and long-term care for individuals who had been affected by an acquired brain injury or other neurological impairment, which included those both physically and cognitively impacted. As the years passed, I moved into complex homecare, working with teams who delivered individualised care built around the person, which enabled them to live as full a life as possible in their own homes.” 

Chris now supports the team at Bespoke to deliver the highest quality care to individuals, whilst also helping the staff who are responsible for delivering outstanding care and support. When asked about the best thing about her role, Chris firmly believes it is making a positive difference to the lives of people we support.

Sarah McHugh

Operations Director

Sarah has worked within the Health & Social Care sector for over 18 years, the vast majority of which has been spent providing clinical and support services to help individuals with complex care needs live independently in their own homes.

“I love the huge satisfaction (and overcoming the challenges!) that delivering great care provides. Our clients are the most important consideration, and meeting their differing needs and requirements means that there is never a dull, nor repetitive day in health care.  I consider it a privilege to support people and to facilitate their choices, however small, enabling them to live the life that they want to live.”

Sarah considers herself very fortunate to have always worked with a great team of people, whose primary objective is to ensure individuals remain safe and supported. Watching people progress in their rehabilitation through the right support and enabling an individual to participate in an activity which they never thought possible are two of the main reasons why Sarah continues to work within the sector.

Rebecca Box

Lead Clinical Nurse Manager

Beki has worked as a Registered Nurse Manager within complex neurological care for the past 7 years. As a naturally caring person, Beki is exceptionally passionate about her role and strives to support every individual to do what they enjoy in life.

“It’s great to be part of a wider team which support people and their families to set and achieve goals on their journey, often during a very challenging time in their lives. I love to trouble shoot, risk assess and think outside the box in order to give the individuals we support the best opportunity to follow their aspirations.”

Having worked within complex care for a number of years, Beki considers herself fortunate to have been, and continue to be, a part of so many people’s incredible journeys and she could not imagine a more fulfilling career.

Rebecca Hurst

Lead Clinical Nurse Manager

Rebecca began her career as a neonatal intensive care nurse, before spending a number of years supporting complex care packages in crisis in the community. During this time, Rebecca supported a little boy with complex needs and after seeing several care providers come and go as they could not support the package, Rebecca decided she wanted to try and make a bigger impact when supporting families and providing them with the care they require. Since then, Rebecca has worked her way through different roles, from complex care management to becoming a complex nurse specialist, and this has led Rebecca to her most recent role as Deputy Clinical Nurse Manager.

“When it comes to the care we provide, I am dedicated to meeting the individual needs of all those who we support and strive to deliver the quality of care I know I would be happy for my own family to receive, should they ever need it.”

Maria Mathura

Lead Clinical Nurse Manager

Maria’s nursing journey began at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, in 2004. After successfully completing her training and qualifying as a Registered Children’s Nurse, Maria transferred to a local hospital and worked in Paediatric Theatre as an anaesthetic and recovery nurse for a number of years, before moving into palliative care working with children who had complex medical needs due to life limiting conditions.

In time, and to fit in with her family life, Maria accepted a role working within the local community where she trained teaching assistants to work with children in schools who had complex needs. It was during this role that Maria met our Operations Manager for the South, who encouraged her to join Bespoke Health & Social Care.

“Since joining Bespoke I have enjoyed every minute of supporting families with discharges home from hospital, transitioning children into school – in some cases accessing school for the first time – and also supporting our wider care teams in providing the highest standard of care by delivering specialist clinical training.”

Kirsty Siddall

Head of Quality

Kirsty began her career in health and social care in 2011, spending several years working for the NHS at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Throughout her time there, Kirsty worked in a variety of roles, starting as a health care assistant in the Accident and Emergency department and progressing to the hospital’s Site Patient Flow Coordinator. Having been highly successful in these roles, Kirsty wanted to progress her career further and decided to make the move into Care Management, where she could ensure all individuals requiring support in the community, received the high quality care they deserved.

“I can honestly say that I love my job. Ensuring we provide high quality care to the people we support is what gets me out of bed in the morning. Working for the NHS & Care management has guided me perfectly to my vocation, quality!”
