ANDREW HEALING - ROUTES HEALTHCARE
Routes Healthcare are fortunate to work with authorities that recognise the value of quality of care. The choices we make as an organisation allow us to fund training, appropriate allocation of time, support for staff, robust and regular client reviews and ultimately provide the tax payer with great value for money. I have been stating for years that the sector requires additional funding and thankfully we are seeing a recognition of this.
It’s great news to see that value for money, quality of care and safeguarding our most vulnerable is being pushed towards the top of the agenda. I look forward to seeing all authorities join the drive to increase quality through partnering with organisations such as Routes Healthcare to provision their care.
