As this issue of Caring Times went to press, major provider Four Seasons Health Care said negotiations to restructure the company’s £1.5bn debt burden were continuing.

A report carried by Financial Times on-line service said the company had agreed a standstill with its lenders after failing to make a £1.5bn debt repayment due on September 1st. To last for eight weeks, the standstill agreement will stop creditios from foreclosing and obliging Four seasons to go into administration.
