Care UK sees opportunities for growth in reform of NHS

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

In its interim results for the six months ended 31 March 2006, Care UK has reported an 18 per cent increase in operating profit to £8.9 million. Chairman John Nash, Chairman said his company had made excellent progress financially and had continued to see good growth in all areas of the business. “With significant contracts in the construction phase, a strong pipeline of further opportunities and excellent organic growth momentum, the outlook for Care UK is very encouraging,” said Mr Nash. “The NHS reform plans offer real opportunity for transformational growth. Inevitably, such a reform programme is subject to some turbulence and considerable public comment and does require increased investment in resources and bidding costs by the group. “However, the scale of opportunity is significant and with the continuing momentum towards a much more extensive contribution from independent sector companies, Care UK is very well placed to benefit.”
