Eleanor secures a new Hounslow care contract

Eleanor Nursing & Social Care is one of seven service providers who has won a new contract to deliver homecare services to residents in the Hounslow area, on behalf of the council in partnership with the Hounslow Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The procurement for the new Hounslow Homecare contract service will deliver home care to 1500 service users across the borough and was awarded to Eleanor, in partnership with six other care providers: Nation Care, Quality Caring Ltd, TC Care Ltd, Westminster Homecare Ltd, Care Outlook Ltd and Healthvision UK.

The contract signing event took place at the Hounslow Professional Development Centre (PDC), on Wednesday 11 July and was attended by council staff, Councillor Candice Atterton, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health and the Mayor of Hounslow, Councillor Samia Chaudhary.

The contract officially commences from 1 November [2018] for seven years, although Eleanor will start looking after around 50 of them from next month [August].

Although the new care package will primarily deliver care to a population aged 65+, it will also cover adults (18+) with non-complex care needs, including those with physical, mental and learning disabilities, as well as people with sensory impairment needs.

Hounslow is a large and vibrant outer London borough, with a diverse population of over 270,000 people (51% from BME communities). The Hounslow population is projected to rise by 6.3% over the next five years, with the BME population expected to increase by 11.3%.

Councillor Candice Atterton, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, Hounslow Council, said: ‘The appointed mix of providers all demonstrate a real passion for the industry and care for vulnerable residents.

‘We know how important it is to support our residents and to encourage independent living for as long as possible, and I believe it plays a crucial part in their happiness by making a difference to their health and wellbeing.

‘We are very excited to be working in partnership with the new providers.’

Mark Santhi, CEO of Eleanor Nursing & Social Care, said: ‘We are delighted to be partnering with Hounslow council and six other care providers to deliver excellent care to adults in the local community.

The council is committed to both the ethical care charter and paying the London Living Wage, which makes a career in care an attractive proposition to the local workforce.

Eleanor looks forward to welcoming these new carers to the team.’

Eleanor is now looking for new carers to work in the area and offers a competitive pay rate of £10.75 an hour, rising to £11 an hour at weekends.
