Kate Bithell
Head Nurse at Delamere

About Kate

I have been at Delamere for 2 and a half years however I have been working in the healthcare sector for 22 years. I started my career like most nurses as a support worker before attending the University of Chester to complete my DipHE in mental health nursing. From there I found a passion for management which has led me to the role of Head Nurse here at Delamere.

The part of my job which I love the most is helping to support and educate the clinical team with healthcare practices and training, as well as facilitating a STOP group for guests, educating and advising them on the physical health area of addiction.
