What quality means to us

Scroll

Everyone at Care UK has a personal and professional commitment to providing excellent care

We play a leading role in driving improved standards across the social care sector. However, we believe that truly excellent care must start with the individual nurse or carer, their actions, and sense of responsibility.

Always improving

 

All colleagues working in a Care UK care home are never satisfied with the status quo. They’re always thinking of ways to improve the care, the environment, the food, the activities... We invite scrutiny, we welcome feedback, and we implement robust systems to monitor our standards. On the rare occasions we find shortcomings we are quick to put them right, review what happened and apply the lessons learned across Care UK.

 The teams in every Care UK care home meet rigorous standards of competence and commitment. Our skills are up-to-date and our performance is regularly reviewed. This gives our customers the peace of mind that each of us is delivering Care UK’s commitment to the highest standards of quality and safety in everything we do.

Nationwide recognition

The skills, dedication and achievements of our people are regularly recognised and celebrated, both in national awards and in our own annual Care UK awards.
