Rob Baillie

Managing Director

As Managing Director I have almost 35 years’ experience as a qualified nurse (RNMH). I have devoted my career to the development and delivery of social and healthcare services for people having learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions and mental illness and more recently social care services for older adults experiencing dementia. 

My work has been within the NHS, private and voluntary sectors and over the years I have gained further education qualifications in Business Studies, Teaching and Assessing Nursing Students, Autism, Clinical Research and Mentoring & Coaching. 

My work has included roles at Regional and National Operational, Strategic, Clinical and Senior Director roles. My experience spans across concept, design, development and service delivery with a strong focus on clinical and care governance, compliance and driving quality and transformation. 

I have a proven track record of being a critical thinker,  being innovative and creative, but most importantly recognition as being a quality driven person with strong desire to deliver the only the best possible care and support services.
