The Franchise Magazine:

Kare Plus has signed a series of new contracts with national care home group HC-One and two major Recruitent Process Outsourcing companies – Commensura and Matrix, which provide managed solutions for local authorities nationwide.

According to Nik Smith, Operations Manager at Kare Plus, together these contracts represent millions of pounds of potential business for Kare Plus franchise owners. Smith said: “HC-One, which operates 240 care homes across the UK, spends an estimated £10 million per annum on outsourced care and Nursing staff and has appointed Kare Plus to its approved agency list. Commensura and Matrix tender for government and council contracts including procuring services for care and nursing homes; they supply 29 local authorities with care and nursing solutions for adults and children, so their combined annual spend on outsourced services is massive.

“To be on the supplier list for these giant procurement specialists is no easy task, you must meet stringent criteria and deliver reliable and consistently high quality services to be considered. In fact, the list for Commensura is now closed for the next three years, so in gaining this contract, Kare Plus has achieved a fantastic coup for our franchise owners.”
