Care UK wins awards for business acumen

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

Major provider Care UK has won two accolades at the Health Investor’s Deals of the Year Awards, held in London in July. The company won Best Merger & Acquisition Transaction for its purchase of Mercury Healthcare in May of this year.

Care UK was attracted by the successful business that Mercury had built and, according to chief executive Mike Parish: “the business was simply irresistible to us. It has an impressive track record in health care provision and dovetailed beautifully with our own business.”
