Anu Jose

General Manager

Hi, my name is Anu, and I am the General Manager here at Woodland View. Welcome to our website!

I have been a registered nurse for over 10 years. Before Barchester, I have had roles in both the public and private sector, but my primary area of work interest has always been supporting people living with dementia.

I have always enjoyed working in care homes and I choose Woodland View because Barchester is a company that welcomes changes and is always working towards embracing them with great enthusiasm.

Andrea Corps

Deputy Manager

I have over 15 years of experience working within the healthcare industry as a nurse, in both the private and public sector. I have worked in a variety of roles, including as both a Senior Nurse and, more recently, as an Education Facilitator, which were helpful in preparing me for my roles as Head of Community and Deputy Manager at Woodland View.

My passion for healthcare comes from a fusion of learning and development.

My commitment to caring for residents and the ability to function as an integral part of the team allows me to make a valuable contribution to the tradition of excellence at Woodland View.

John McNally

Maintenance Manager

I'm very proud to have been given the opportunity to work at the beautiful new Barchester care home at Woodland View in Colchester. I look forward to meeting all the residents and helping them enjoy the lovely building we have here. I'm a very easy going person; always with time to listen to resident's needs. My main focus is the safety of our residents and to keep the home running smoothly as I work with a great team to make the building a home.

I enjoy a good read and music, but my greatest joy is to see happy smiling faces enjoying what they do each day.

Tansie Fitch


My name is Tansie and I am a qualified hairdresser who has worked in the industry for over 32 years. I am very privileged to be given this opportunity to work at Woodland View

I am a very conscientious, bubbly and outgoing person; I love working with the elderly and have retained clients for over 25 years because they trust me to do their hair. To me, they are not just clients, but long-lasting friends.

This is a great chance to make a difference to people’s lives and to make them feel better about themselves.
