New integrated offer that combines nursing and personal care available to commissioners
Bupa Home Healthcare is today announcing it has formed a new UK-wide partnership with domiciliary care provider Bluebird Care in response to demand from commissioners for integrated packages of care and support.
The new partnership will mean that Bupa Home Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest out of hospital care providers, and Bluebird Care will tender for relevant new contracts together. Bupa Home Healthcare will manage the healthcare aspects of care, offering full case management and providing nursing care for patients with a range of continuing care needs, while Bluebird Care will cover the non-medical aspects, such as help with patients getting up in the morning, going to bed or with household chores.
Stephen Flanagan, Managing Director, Bupa Home Healthcare, said:
“We are really excited by this new and innovative offer available to the NHS. We are confident this new integrated package of care, in partnership with Bluebird Care, will better support our patients’ needs and provide more care for patients in their own homes.”
Paul Tarsey, Managing Director of Bluebird Care, said:
“We have been aware for some time that NHS and private commissioners alike, want a strong, reliable and cohesive service. This new relationship between Bupa Home Healthcare and Bluebird Care will put both companies in the very forefront of the market. We absolutely believe that there is no other provider partnership which comes close to providing the service that will now be available from our two companies.”
