Plimsoll predicts better 2010 for sector

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

Jan 5: New research by industry analysts Plimsoll says that the care sector will continue to recover in 2010. David Pattison, a senior analyst, said: ‘Aggressive ‘growth at all cost’ operators have been forced to abandon their reckless strategies and many have been caught out and are in real trouble. However, some amazing companies have come through the recession largely unaffected and look set to make 2010 their year.’ However, it’s not all good news as Pattinson went onto say that more job losses and consolidations were highly likely.
