Serco seeks help from social enterprise to run healthcare contract
Outsourcing company Serco has signed a deal with a social enterprise to help it run a troubled healthcare service in Suffolk.
Bromley Healthcare, a £45m-a-year community interest company which span out of the NHS, has agreed to support the running of Suffolk Community Healthcare. Serco signed a three-year deal to run the service in 2012, but has faced difficulties delivering the contract.
A joint statement from the two organisations said they also “intend to join forces to bid for a range of opportunities in community services and integrated care across the UK”.
