Inspire Neurocare Worcester’s Registered Manager, Marc Russell, joined the team in summer 2019 to open and manage the new specialist service.
Marc has over 20 years’ experience in neurological services - in both managerial and operational roles across the West Midlands and further afield. In previous jobs with Bupa, Priory and Voyage Care, Marc has developed and commissioned new services for people with a range of complex disabilities. In addition, Marc worked to provide support to active service personnel, ensuring they were able to return back into the community post-injury.
Overseeing the building works, recruiting a dedicated team and developing the care and rehabilitation approach kept Marc busy for the first six months and since February 2020, he has balanced opening the new service, caring for residents and coping with the impact of Covid19. Along with Clinical Director, Michelle Kudhail, Marc leads the team to provide high-quality neurocare and rehabilitation at Inspire Neurocare in Worcester.
One of the key parts of Marc’s passion for the sector has always been on developing high quality, effective staff teams.
“For me, getting the team right is so important. At Inspire Neurocare, we have an enormous responsibility to our residents and their loved ones, to the regulators and to the health and social care community we are part of. I’ve worked hard to recruit a local, skilled and happy team with outstanding attitudes and values that will match the ethos of the service and the organisation as a whole..”
Marc, who lives in Birmingham, is a keen Smiths fan who enjoys travelling, scuba diving and watching live music.
