We understand that quality is crucial to everything we do at Care UK.
Everyone at Care UK has a personal and professional commitment to providing excellent care, whether in a residential home, a treatment centre, a GP practice or in the home of someone they care for.
We play a leading role in driving improved standards across the health and social care sectors. But we believe that truly excellent care must start with the individual, and their actions and sense of responsibility. It’s about always recognising what is expected by the people we care for and the organisations on whose behalf we provide care.
Each of us is dedicated to making improvements wherever we can, and is never satisfied with the status quo. We ensure that everything we do is continually scrutinised. We get feedback from the people who use our services and implement robust systems to monitor our standards in every part of Care UK. On the rare occasions we find shortcomings we are quick to put them right and review what happened.
All of us at Care UK meets rigorous standards of competence and commitment. Our skills are up-to-date and our performance is regularly reviewed. You can rest assured that each of us delivers Care UK’s commitment to the highest standards of quality and safety in everything we do.
We’re proud of the awards and accolades we continue to win. For example, 2011 saw our Healthcare division feature in a top ten of best performing hospitals for knee replacement operations in the Dr Foster Hospital Guide.
The guide’s experts also analysed the outcomes of thousands of hip replacement operations in a range of hospitals. Looking at length of hospital stay, likely need for a second operation, and readmissions, they concluded that the four hospitals run by Care UK performed better than any other NHS or independent sector provider.
Our endoscopy services are also considered some of the best in the country. We hold Joint Advisory Group (JAG) accreditation, which places our services in the top 5 % nationally.
