Newport care home collapses into administration

Fri, 30 Aug 2019 | ADMINISTRATION



The company behind the Caerleon House care home in Newport, Wales has fallen into administration after citing a “cashflow situation” as the reason for its downfall.

Gwent Nursing Homes Limited was forced to call in professional advisory firm Quantuma to handle the administration process, with partners Graham Randall, Chris Newell and Paul Zalkin appointed as joint administrators.

At present, the administration has not impacted staff, and a statement from the administrators noted that no redundancies were planned.

Newell commented on the administration, saying: “Our immediate priorities are to ensure the business is maintained as a going concern and to seek a purchaser who has the financial ability to take the business forward on a more secure financial footing.”

Adding to this, Randall said: “Our immediate priority has been to start stabilising the business.

“In the first 36 hours we met staff, residents’ families, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) and Newport City Council to ensure the 47 residents are receiving a high level of care and all statutory and regulatory requirements are being met.

“We have also engaged with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) and it is fair to say that there is relief amongst all stakeholders that we have stepped in to stabilise the business and secure its immediate future.”

Earlier in the month, ABUHB, Newport Council and the CIW provided managerial and financial support to Caerleon House as a result of the “cashflow situation”. However, now due to the administration, Gwent Nursing Homes Ltd is being marketed by Christie & Co. who are actively seeking a buyer.
