Alan White, Staffordshire County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health, Care and Wellbeing, said:
“We have been made aware by the Care Quality Commission about its concerns about the future of Allied Healthcare, which is a national homecare provider operating across the country including Staffordshire.
“Our priority is ensuring those in need of care will continue to receive it, and we have had assurances from Allied that care will continue for the moment. We are working with Allied on longer term solutions, and will update all of our service users when we are position to do so. We want to reassure them that their care will continue.
“We understand that this news may cause some concern, so we have our Staffordshire Cares helpline open from 9am to 5pm on Saturday. People in Staffordshire who receive homecare can call the helpline on 0300 111 8010.”
