CEO and Founder

Before founding Cavalry Healthcare in 2018, Rory already had extensive experience as a palliative care nurse, clinical educator and evaluation manager.

He launched Cavalry with the aim of providing an ethical, high-quality nursing agency service to care homes. His dedication to quality was fuelled directly by his personal experience of using agencies as a Senior Nurse himself.

Building on Cavalry’s growing reputation and keen to have a more direct impact on the quality of care for individuals, Rory started Cavalry’s CQC registered Complex Care at Home service in 2020, supporting children and adults with complex health needs in the community.

Rory’s ambition is for Cavalry to become a national, high-quality care provider, building on the 8 local branches which he has already opened in the northwest – and which made Cavalry the fastest-growing healthcare company in 2022.
