Fatmata Cochrane

General Manager

Welcome to St Thomas Care Home website, my name is Fatmata Cochrane, 'Fatima' and I am the General Manager here.

I have been a General Registered Nurse for over 10 years with a NMC pin. I've worked in both the NHS and the private healthcare sector, with experience as a Deputy Manager over the last 6 years including Acting General Manager for a neighbouring Barchester Healthcare Nursing Home.

My qualifications include a BSC (Hons) in Management with Human Resource Management and recently completed the NVQ level 5 in Health & Social Care.

I am passionate and committed about delivering an excellent quality of service and care for our residents. I am proud of our entire staff and as a team we will work together with all residents and relatives to ensure that everyone receives the individual care and service they require and deserve.


Norbert Nyanjo

Hi, my name is Norbert, and I am the Clinical Lead here at St Thomas.

I have more than ten years of experience working in the elderly care sector in Africa, Europe and the UK and I love it. I joined Barchester Healthcare because it is the organisation where residents and staff are being value; it provides a supportive and cooperative work environment and the opportunities for further growth and development of staff. It is also an organisation where diversity and equality counts.
