NatWest funds EMI unit in Somerset

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

A new 50-bed EMI care home is being built in Wellington, Somerset. Scheduled to open in October, Chelston Park care home is being funded by NatWest and Lombard and is owned by brothers Richard and Patrick Allistone. The facility will be built in the grounds of Chelston Park, a care home which already offers 34 beds for adults needing care. Natwest is funding the new build, with all the new rooms being built to exceed current National Minimum Standards. Lombard has offered asset finance to fund the home’s care equipment and beds. Chelston Park directors Richard and Patrick Allistone said this latest investment stemmed from the need to increase the number of beds offered in Somerset. “As local care providers we are experienced in this sector and take pride in the care we deliver,” said the brothers. “We wanted to expand the services we can offer. NatWest play a very important part in this new project and we are very impressed with the level of care and healthcare knowledge that they offer us.”
