Care with a capital K – Kare Plus has their priorities right

This is a really exciting time for the healthcare industry. Established in 1989, Kare Plus is a recruitment agency that works within the healthcare market worth £Billions each year. Kare Plus franchisees manage the recruitment and placement of their workforce with the support of a head office team.

Kare Plus is committed to excellent customer service. Their franchisees employ a diverse team to help to provide the best possible care for people from all walks of life with various needs. “This is, and always will be, our main aim,” explains Steve Welsh, Managing Director at Kare Plus.

“The healthcare industry is estimated to be worth in excess of £27 Billion and is going through a series of ground-breaking changes. Government reforms mean that the market we work within has opened up hugely and the opportunities for our franchisees are brilliant as our business model operates across public, private, institutional and home healthcare services. With shocking new statistics from the Patients Association hailing only 1 in 7 care homes provide enough food and water for their residents, we are finding the demand for our home healthcare services is even stronger than ever.”

Kare Plus enables its franchisees to work across public and private sectors by maintaining the standards required for the major quality assurance associations and committees:

  • The Buying Solutions NHS framework enabling them to provide staffing solutions to NHS and private hospitals, Primary Care Trusts and clinics
  • The Care Quality Commission who regulate care provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies and voluntary organisations
  • The Recruitment & Employment Confederation are committed to raising standards and highlighting excellence throughout the recruitment industry and all REC Members must abide by the REC Code of Professional Practice
  • United Kingdom Homecare Association Ltd (UKHCA) is the professional association of home care providers promoting high standards of care and providing representation with national and regional policy-makers and regulators.

The head office at Kare Plus lives and breaths a determination to provide the best quality care and customer service at every point of contact. This conviction spreads out through their network of franchisees and is why Kare Plus is getting a name for themselves in the market. “Our aim is to be the leading private healthcare provider in the UK,” explains Steve, “Our head office has already secured national contracts and has a proven process for council tendering. We have the know-how, the experience and the opportunities – all we need now is to grow with the right franchisees.”

“We currently have a network of 8 franchisees who all have some things in common, they are strong communicators and organisers who have great people management skills and are motivated to make a success of their businesses. Our training supports our franchisees in every aspect of the business but these core attributes are what we know will be a sound starting point.”
