Dominic has enjoyed a hugely successful career in the care sector; he was previously the Main Board Director of Four Seasons Health Care for 10 years and one of the founder members of the Restructuring Committee of Southern Cross.

The company has big plans in place for the remainder of this year and beyond, so it is good to be an integral part of these. I am also glad to be based back in the North West.” Dominic has been a non-executive director for New Care for two years, so is already very familiar with the company.
He concludes: “Over the course of the last couple of years I have witnessed how fast moving and open to new ideas New Care is as a company. It is wonderful to be involved with such a progressive and innovative business, and I am very much looking forward to an exciting future here.” Chris McGoff, CEO at New Care adds: “Having worked closely with Dominic during the last two years, I am confident that he is absolutely the right man for the Chairman role at New Care.
