Shaw Healthcare – pursuing its vision in adverse times
Shaw Healthcare’s chief executive JEREMY NIXEY discusses the company’s establishment, development and future plans as the landscape of UK healthcare evolves
As with any business, it is Shaw Healthcare’s owners that determine its vision, financing strategy and culture. Yet, in this case, the owners are not external investors and funders, but its own staff – making it unlike most other care businesses.
Two years ago Shaw’s owners bought the entire business from Shaw Homes – Shaw Healthcare’s founding, but now exempt, charity – and now its 4,000 plus staff, together with an employee benefit trust, own 90% of the company. Shaw Homes owns the balance in perpetuity.
