Sofia Pereira

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sofia and I am the General Manager here at Oulton Park. Welcome to our website!

I completed my nursing degree in Portugal, where I then worked for almost a year. I moved to the UK in 2012 and I have over 10 years of experience in the nursing care sector.

I consider myself as a dynamic manager with strong leadership and relationship-building skills.

I am passionately committed and I strive to enhance the lives of the residents by delivering person-centred and high quality care, always ensuring that the residents are at the heart of everything we do.

I really enjoy spending time with the residents and getting to know them as individuals.

My aim is to continue innovating to meet the needs of the residents as well as their families, in order to ensure that everyone can live as independent as possible.

I have an open door policy and I strongly believe that together we can make a difference. I am very proud to be part of the Barchester family!
