What does 2018 have in store?

4th January 2018

A new year brings fresh challenges in the care industry and 2018 promises to be a particularly big year for us here at CLCA.

Our company has made tremendous strides over our near six years in operation, becoming a leader in delivering top quality care to clients in their own homes and providing an increasingly vital role in support of both NHS and private hospitals in Shropshire, Powys and the West Midlands.

As 2018 gets underway we are in the process of expanding these services to other areas of the country while still maintaining the highest standards expected by our staff and management, and demanded by those we serve.

Being a market leader comes with a huge responsibility and this is something we will continue to embrace wholeheartedly as we move forward with our major expansion plans over the next 12 months.

In order to ensure our continued success, it is vital that as a company we focus on early planning on all fronts. This means keeping in regular contact with our partners in understanding their needs and being able to have solutions available to deal with any eventuality.

To do this we need the right staff – our most valuable commodity. Our training process is second-to-none and our entry requirements are much higher than the minimum necessities.

This means when the call comes from NHS or private partners we are able to provide the best professional to fill the gap. Our talent pool is extensive and while planning ahead is something we always try to aim for we are also aware that situations occur last-minute and this is something we are equally comfortable with.

Our recruitment process is ongoing and we are actively seeking to expand the number of nurses on our books. This need will only increase over the next 12 months as demand for our services increase.

We will also see the continued development of the homecare division of our business as we strengthen our position of bringing the best care to the most vulnerable in our community no matter the complexity of their health conditions. This division allows us to fully support the Discharge to Assess Pathway (D2A) set out by NHS England as they look to enhance their Continuing Health Care (CHC) programme.

This service helps to ease the burden on the NHS and allows people to remain as independent as possible in the comfort, safety and reassurance of their own home.

As the new year gets underway we know that in the months ahead even more people will be needing our services.

Our population is ageing and there is an increasing number of vulnerable people, adults and children, in need of social care as health budgets are frozen or cut to make savings.

Our expert team can cater for short or long-term care needs and can provide live-in, respite and palliative care, help with recovery and rehabilitation and offer in-school and after-school care.

Our plans for this year promise to be ground-breaking, challenging and exciting as we move forward, but one thing that will not change through all this is our total commitment to care.

If you have any questions or queries about any of our services then please feel free to get in touch.
