Care UK homes in running for national award

Company news

 

Care UK’s residential care service is among the finalists for a Provider of the Year award from a top healthcare sector magazine.

The shortlisting by Health Investor magazine recognises the recent achievements of Care UK - including opening 31 homes in the last five years with a further 26 homes due to open in the next three years.  Currently Care UK provides care and support for almost 7,500 people.

The shortlisting also recognises Care UK’s sustained focus on quality standards - out of the top five care providers in England and Scotland (measured by the number of places in all homes)  it  currently enjoys the highest Care Quality Commission/Care Inspectorate ratings for its residential services for older people.  Two Care UK homes are rated Outstanding by the CQC and a further eight have had their outstanding efforts recognised against at least one of the regulator’s key themes.

Andrew Knight, managing director of residential care, said: “This is wonderful recognition for our hardworking teams, and their dedication to driving excellence for residents and their families.

“By listening to our residents and their families, we have come to understand what they need and focus on delivering it. That, plus our focus on helping our colleagues to develop their skills, is what has enabled us to secure the highest quality ratings of any of the top five largest care home providers. We’re also proud of our innovative public sector partnerships and our investment in new homes is helping to meet society’s growing need for high quality residential care. I think these are all factors in our shortlisting for this prestigious award.”
