Allied Healthcare

Allied Healthcare is a major supplier of domicilary and other social care services to local government.

In November 2018 the Care Quality Commission (CQC) notified 84 councils which use Allied Healthcare of possible disruption to services and advising them to make contingency plans.

In April 2018 Allied Healthcare announced that it was examining CVA insolvency arrangements. These would allow it to continue to trade as usual without job losses. A letter to creditors allegedly blamed increased agency labour costs, staff shortages due to Brexit and backdated 'sleep in' payments for its financial problems.

Allied Healthcare has contracts with over 100 local authorities and those spending over £1m in 2017 are listed below. A full list is available on the CQC news page.
