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

Care UK has announced a 24 per cent increase in turnover for the 6 months ended March 31 this year. Operating profit is reported to be up by 20 per cent, with a 15 per cent increase in pre-tax profits and total forward contracted income of £713m. Care UK chairman John Nash said that, during the period, the company had been appointed by Poole in Dorset as preferred bidder to supply residential care. Care UK had also achieved 6 per cent growth in its homecare division, and acquired homecare provider Seymour Care. The company had also won a contract for learning disabilities in Lancashire, and was appointed as preferred bidder by North East London for the provision of clinical care services. “We are encouraged by the new business success that has been achieved in each of the four operating divisions, together with continued good operational performance,” said Mr Nash. “Care UK’s strategy is proving to be well founded and we anticipate a flow of further opportunities during the coming years.”
