Local care contracts transferred to new home care providers
Date published: 06 December 2018
Local care contracts have been transferred to four new home care providers, following the news that Allied Healthcare could have stopped operating at the end of November.
Allied Healthcare, one of the country’s largest home care providers, has since been acquired by CRG, a UK home care, healthcare, social care and education staffing sector provider.
Tracey Harrison, the council’s assistant director for commissioning (adults), said: “Following our decision to terminate the contract with Allied Healthcare, we have now arranged transfers of care for all our service users to four new care providers.
“We are now working with providers to ensure there is minimum disruption to people’s existing care packages and that continuity of care is delivered as a matter of priority.
“The safety, wellbeing and care needs of our residents will always come first.”
Allied Healthcare did not respond to an invitation to comment.
