Interesting to note the figure of 150 care homes closed, closing or sold. Between the lines all seriously non-compliant homes such as their one at Morecambe Bay, Broadway and others closing recently are in this category of no more investment, get rid.
Forget the standard excuses of unstable management, unavailability of Nurses, staff, it's just a cover job! Guy Hand truly is King Midas In Reverse. All turns to rust.
Remember 50% of care fees goes to cover financial restructuring debt and not into the care home.
The real economic crisis and not Government/ Council fault but purely the providers.

Patel's HC ONE record Has been getting worse overall and not just in Tameside. God Help those ex-BUPA residents now part of the HC-One empire.

Shameful example of HC-One, here going under the Meridian Brand, but still owned by the Dementia Guru and glory boy Dr Chia Patel present as care! Care more like the hell homes of Romania and the Burma Railway Prison Camps of World War 11.
For Peter Clarke who has been fighting for justice for ages against the United forces of HC-One, Local Authority, Social Services and CQC.
I understand from information received from Peter that 11 out of 13 Meridian Healthcare Limited care homes, AKA HC-ONE are non-compliant in Tameside, but there are others in different parts of the north. CQC web site link HERE .
It isn't a coincidence to have so many homes in an area by the company failing together. It's corporate systemic system failure. Would indicate a company economically failing? Maybe Patel is wanting to get rid of them to raise cash for buying those BUPA homes? HC-one is built on economic sand.
