Since the CQC’s announcement this week, we can understand that some of you might be worried about any care at home you or a loved one receives.

This week, the CQC announced that Allied Healthcare only have funding until the 30th of November 2018. While this is worrying, Bucks County Council is reassuring people that services will not be interrupted.

Lin Hazell, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said:

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has made us aware of their concerns relating to Allied Health Care’s financial viability.

We are in close contact with the local branch of Allied Healthcare and our priority is always the care and wellbeing of our vulnerable residents. As such, we will be writing to all clients to keep them informed and putting contingency in plans place should we need to transfer anyone to a new care provider.

At present we are not expecting any disruption to care services and expect things to continue as usual. We are closely monitoring the situation and will take action as and when it is considered necessary.

If anyone has any questions or worries, they should call the council on 01296 383 204.
