Virtue Health Services director, Scott Snowden, has worked in the building industry for over 20 years, specialising in healthcare services since 2015 with Constructa Services. Responsible for managing the development and refurbishment of Virtue Pathways in South Yorkshire, Scott is looking forward to the launch of Virtue’s first service in early 2020.
What are you most excited about for the next six months?
Virtue’s first community pathway will feel like home. Watching our vision come to life and seeing our first guests arrive and settle in to their new home is what I’m most looking forward to. The service will be supportive, equipped for people with complex disabilities and homely at the same time – seeing people living happy lives in our service will be very rewarding.
You describe Virtue Health Services as adhering to a ‘moral of excellence.’ What does this mean to you?
To me, moral of excellence means achieving the very best, working to the highest standards, enabling care and support to be delivered at an outstanding level for everyone we support.
What do you think will change or develop at Virtue over the next five years?
Having met with regional commissioners and as we further develop our understanding of the local demand for services for people with complex disabilities, I see our growth strategy expanding as the demand to place individuals in the community strengthens. This will see our employee numbers grow too. We want to become first choice for individuals, families and care commissioners who are looking for quality placements in South Yorkshire.
What do you do when you aren’t working?
I enjoy walking and climbing, in particular in Keswick in the Lake District. I’m a keen golfer and I’m a member of a club in Doncaster. I also love travelling, going on holidays and socialising with my family and friends.
What might people be surprised to know about you?
I’m an amazing cook!
Finally, if you had to choose a Mr Man or Little Miss that best matches your personality, who would you choose?
I’m definitely Mr. Fussy. I like everything to be done efficiently and effectively – this means sometimes others call me fussy! I agree – but it allows things to be achieved properly and as they should be!
