Coming initially from a military background, Annette began her healthcare career as a sports therapist/ acupuncturist before training to be a nurse working within the NHS. Annette then made the leap to the private sector, where she joined Millbrook Healthcare 6 years ago. As Clinical and Quality Director, Annette leads the Governance Team, Clinicians and Wheelchair Services within the group including, clinical, admin and logistics teams as well as our specialist seating business, Consolor. Annette is passionate about the standards and values we aspire to within the Millbrook Group and is very proud of the colleagues she works alongside and the difference they all make to our service users lives. She firmly believes in the importance of being an advocate, whether that is for our colleagues, service users or our communities and feels the importance of ‘having a voice’ or ‘being heard’ shouldn’t be underestimated.
Annette is a keen sportswoman, with her first love being running, particularly off road and can often be found taking her trainers to the hills of the Lake District. She has 2 grown up sons who have left home, suspiciously at the same time as she started a renovation project, leaving her a dab hand at overlap fencing. She also has a menagerie of animals including 4 alpacas, chickens, ducks and dogs and is contemplating rescuing some Turkey or Geese to add to her brood.
