HEALTH chiefs are working closely with a home care provider to ensure vital services for more than 100 vulnerable residents are not disrupted.

Allied Healthcare has been bought by CRG after the Care Quality Commission raised concerns about the company’s future due to its financial sustainability.

Allied delivered services for 104 people in the town – with the firm contracting with the council and Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group.

Cllr Pat Wright, executive board member responsible for adult social care, has moved to reassure residents following the latest developments.

She said: “We are working very closely with the new provider and the Care Quality Commission to ensure there continues to be no service disruption to people receiving care.

“I would like to reassure residents that there will be no changes to the way that care is delivered to them.

“Our priority is to ensure that all care needs continue to be met and to ensure a smooth transition and really good quality care.”
