Lancashire care home in administration

30 April 2014

Abacus Care Home Care and Nursing Services (Ormskirk) Limited has entered administration due to increasing legislation and growing competition. 

Along with its sister company, Abacus Care (Home Care and Nursing Services) Limited, the business provided nurses and care home assistants to hospitals, care homes and patients’ homes. 

The care home provider could no longer see the business as viable, therefore appointed joint administrators, Chris White and Gareth Rusling of The P&A Partnership on Thursday 24th April. With regret, the two companies have had to shut down, resulting in over 150 redundancies.

White commented, “Abacus Care Home Care and Nursing Services (Ormskirk) Limited has provided a valuable service across the North West, and across the UK, for a number of years but has fallen victim to growing health care legislation alongside rising competition”.
