Alpha’s generosity

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Some independent care providers can’t be doing too badly. Alpha Healthcare for one, has seen its way to donating almost £400,000 to the Liberal Democrat political party over the past four years.

Lord Hameed, a board member of Alpha Healthcare, was nominated as a non-party peer in 2005 after being nominated by the Lib-Dem party treasurer Lord Clement-Jones. This is, according to an Alpha Healthcare, not connected to donations made to the party by the company.
