Meet the Caremark Epsom & Ewell, Reigate and Banstead team
OtherLeading our team is Debbie Binner, an international business woman, who runs a number of companies in the healthcare space. She leads our team with the same professionalism, passion and empathy that she is so well known for in other sectors. The company was set up by Debbie's husband Simon in 2013. Sadly Simon died, after a diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, in 2015. Debbie says: "We saw firsthand how great care can make such a difference, even in the most awful circumstances. The people who cared for my husband still work for us now. Like all of our staff they are hand picked for their expertise and compassion. It's how we have built such a wonderful and successful company. We see our staff and clients as part of our extended family, our people are the most precious thing that we have and are at the absolute heart of everything that we do."
Operations DirectorHannah Drury has taken over from Simon Binner as Operations Director. Hannah attended school locally and has first hand experience of delivering care though illnesses within her own family - her sister and her step father. Hannah has a corporate background in the service industry. She is also currently working on an Open University degree in Psychology and has completed the Cultural Awareness module of the Common Purpose Leadership programme. Hannah is absolutely passionate about driving forward the best possible care in the whole of the London Borough of Sutton and now in Epsom, Banstead and Reigate: "I've seen truly fantastic care delivered to members of my family," she says. "We can't always change what happens to us; but we can make sure we care for people with dignity, compassion, kindness and absolute professionalism. When I look at our service I ask myself: is this the standard I would expect for my Mum or a member of my family." Hannah says she LOVES working in care and making a difference.
