Director of Quality Assurance and Standards
Claire Xuereb graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Nursing Studies in 2004 from the University of Malta. As part of her undergraduate studies, Claire carried out part of her work-practice experience at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, UK.
As a State Registered Nurse by profession, Claire has extensive experience in Intensive Care as well as Community Care, both in the public and in the private sectors. An evaluation of her experience both within the community and in hospitals led to the realisation that there was a need for community care, which was sorely lacking, and which consequently led to a negative impact on hospital stays and overloads.
With the aim of bridging the gap between hospital and the community, in order to avoid needless and prolonged hospitalisations whilst providing the service of care needed within the community, she partnered up with long-time friend Aaron Axiaq.
Through experience, hard work, challenges, and determination, today she is Director and shareholder of Apex Group Ltd, ensuring that quality services are delivered to meet client s’ needs and expectations.
Having care and the community at heart, to date, Claire serves as a Council member for Ladies Circle Malta, a voluntary organisation that is part of Ladies Circle International.
Director of Operations and Business Development
Aaron Axiaq graduated in Nursing Studies in 1999 from the University of Malta and started practising as an Intensive Therapy Nurse at the former St. Luke’s Hospital, as well as a Community Nurse in various private health establishments. Aaron was directly involved in the migration of the Intensive Care Unit from the former St. Luke’s Hospital to the current acute hospital, Mater Dei, in 2007. Later, in 2012, he read for his postgraduate degree in Health Sciences at the University of Malta, while he continued to serve as an intensive care nurse as well as holding a managerial role in the same Intensive Care Unit. He was also involved in the mentoring of nursing students as well as the assessment of nursing students’ final practical exams within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Malta. Additionally, he continued to strengthen his experience in the private health sector through community nursing and occupied managerial positions in the said sector. As a member of the Intensive Therapy Unit Team, Aaron was awarded the “Midalja għall-Qadi tar-Repubblika” on 13 December, 2009 by the former President of Malta Dr. George Abela.
Aaron and his comrade and colleague Claire Xuereb teamed up to combine their experience in the health care sector and, in 2012, they founded Apex Community Care Ltd. Since, at that point in time, nursing in the community was lacking in Malta, the company was set up with the aim to offer excellent service and holistic care to its clients through a one-stop-shop in the community health care services.
