Welcome to Barchester Healthcare Ltd

Over the past twenty years, Barchester has grown from a single care home to more than200 throughout the UK with around 17,000 staff caring for 10,000 people. We continue to grow steadily with new developments planned into the future.

We remain at the forefront of private healthcare in the UK with a solid reputation gained not only for excellence in care, but also for investment in our staff. Opportunity for career development is guaranteed with Barchester - we offer clear career pathways leading to nationally recognised qualifications to enable sustained professional development – whatever your role.

Over the years we have achieved many awards but we are probably proudest of being the ONLY healthcare provider to have ever reached the ‘Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For’. We have achieved this prestigious award six times in total, and yet again in 2014! What makes this particular award so special is that the voters are our own staff – a wonderful accolade.

About us

Since we started, our principles have remained the same: to provide quality environments that nurture our residents and their families, and which also provide workplaces that reward and inspire our staff. Our aim is for each of our homes and hospitals to be an engaging community for all involved.

We place individuality at the heart of everything that we do – celebrating diversity in our homes and in our staff. Barchester’s approach – hiring people with passion, training them well and developing their careers hasn’t changed over the years. We are committed to empowering our people and pride ourselves on encouraging them to grow, both personally and professionally.


Our staff have voted us one of Britain’s ‘Best Big Companies to Work For’ six times!
