Coventry plans to close 13 homes


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

Coventry City Council’s plan to modernise its care home system is now under way with tender bids being invited for the first phase of new homes. The council is planning to close all its 13 homes and replace them with new buildings. Five housing associations, Anchor West Midlands, Focus, Hanover, Orbit and Touchstone, have been invited to tender to build the new homes which will then be rented back to the council, as part of the first phase. The council’s in house team, Older Peoples Provider Services, is bidding to provide the care staff. Current staff at the homes have been told that they will have to compete for their own jobs. #The guidance can be found at http://doh.gov.uk/continenceservices.htm
