Allied Healthcare buys ScotHomecare

Posted on 08 March 2011

Allied Healthcare International has taken over ScotHomecare, which provides services for people paying for long term care, in a £2.5 million deal.

Ann Rushford, who also serves as chief executive of nursing agency Scotnursing, sold the business to Allied Healthcare, which will now become the largest provider of home care in Scotland.

ScotHomecare has branches in Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Borders, the Highlands and Leicester, and provides more than 10,000 hours of care per week for older people and those with physical disabilities.

As a result of the acquisition, Allied Healthcare hopes to offer higher margin services in new locations.

Ms Rushford said: "The ScotHomcare team is excited to be joining the Allied business and building upon the organisation's proven track record of strength and customer reputation."

Recently, the Glasgow Evening Times reported that a plan to build a care home and housing complex at a hospital in the city has been cancelled.
