The news last week of further financial problems at Care Home owner Four Seasons has brought a sharp response from Midlands MP John Spellar.
John Spellar who has regularly raised concerns over the year regarding the operation of large Care Home Groups said:-
“This is just the latest example of mismanagement by these Groups and it must be of huge concern to their residents and their families. Basically these companies are based on an unsustainable business model and they cannot just expect hard pressed Councils to bail them out. What is certain is the Government has to intervene, and if necessary, take over the running of these homes.
“I have written to the Secretary of State, Jeremy Hunt, to ask him to take urgent action.”
