Vicki Morieson

Registered Manager

Vicki qualified as a nurse in Australia in 2006. Whilst training to be a nurse she worked as a support worker for people with disabilities, ranging from spinal injuries to autism and learning disabilities.

She started her career in nursing in a private hospital working in the medical palliative unit, before
going through the graduate transition programme so she could join the surgical unit, which had a children’s ward, women’s ward and a high dependency unit. This gave he the opportunity to work in different areas and see where her natural affinity lay.

Vicki was keen to diversify her experiences and joined a public hospital, which also had the community health services running alongside it. It was here that she saw the benefits of people accessing their health care in the community.

In the summer of 2010 Vicki moved to the UK. It took a year to go through the registration process to be able to work as a registered nurse, so whilst she was waiting for this she worked as a live-in carer for older people needing dementia care or with young people, with care needs, supporting them to live in their own homes for longer.

Once Vicki was able to work as a registered nurse she worked in a variety of pioneering hospitals, such as Guys and St Thomas, The Foundation Trust and the London Clinic, as well as doing agency work. Vicki says she is a ‘specialist generalist’ and prides herself on her ability to adapt to new environments. This also allows her to keep learning and enhance her professional development.

On a personal level Vicki had experience of family members having dementia or strokes. These experiences were drivers for Vicki, who believes that high quality health care should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their geographical location.

She joined the Catalyst Family in May 2020 as the Registered Manager for Unique Bristol and was drawn to it for its progressive and innovative approach to healthcare and the concept of people being able to access their care needs at home.
