Eye care service goes it alone

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

Healthcall Optical Services (HOS) has been purchased from the parent company Nestor plc in a management buy out funded by Natwest Bank and Credo Corporate Finance. HOS provides domiciliary eye care services to people living in residential care homes and sheltered accommodation. The new parent company, Domiciliary Services Ltd, will expand the range of domiciliary services offered to its client group. Jayne Rawlinson, managing director of HOS, will remain in her current role and all existing staff will be retained. Dispensing optician, Stephen Gould will join the management team as commercial director and chartered accountants Paul Williams and Kaushik Nathwani have also join the team. “We are all very excited about the new ownership of HOS and the opportunities it brings us.” Ms Rawlinson said. “The focus now is to further strengthen our position as leaders in the market and broaden our services to individuals in their own homes.”
