Hi, my name is Emma and I am the General Manager here at Stamford Bridge. Welcome to our website! I have been working for Barchester since 2015. I qualified as a general nurse in 2004, and have worked as a nurse within the local community and hospitals in the area, and I am passionate about delivering the highest quality of care to those we support. There's never a dull day!

I consider myself to be extremely privileged to work with such wonderful people, full of humour with wonderful stories to tell. I know it’s a cliché, but we are like one big happy family—I love being here!  I am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team that demonstrate a nurturing warm and compassionate approach.   The homes core objective is to promote a quality ethos centred person centred care, enabling and giving peace of mind to everyone we come into contact with.

Rachael qualified as a nurse in 2006. For the first four and a half years she worked in respiratory for those with high dependency. Rachael then worked in oncology for four years. Before joining Barchester in 2018 Rachael spent four years with a private care provider as a nurse consultant.

Rachael leads her team to deliver the highest standards of nursing care to our residents, promoting independence and enhancing quality of life.
