Priory Court Complex Operating Well, Despite the Closure of Southern Cross

Priory Court Complex Operating Well, Despite the Closure of Southern CrossThe nursing and care home in Stamford, Priory Court complex is operating well, despite the closure of UK’s largest care home provider, Southern Cross. The care home provider has largely reached a loss of £311m and suspended dealings in its shares.

Although, Southern Cross is closed Priory Court is operating as usual and residents and their relatives are being told that the home will not close or reduce its services. It has received calls from other care home operators interested in taking it over.

Southern Cross operates as many as 752 homes across the country and has said that it will transfer all operations to the landlords of the premises after its closure. The landlords of 250 homes have said they will take over the operations of the care home, probably by October.

Priory Court is not among the 250 homes which well be taken over by the landlords in near future. The owner of Priory Court said that no decision has been made about which care operator will be proving services there.

The Government has promised that no resident of the Southern Cross homes will be left homeless.
