A company which runs four care homes in Ilkeston, including Ladywood Care Home, has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of three new members.

Bruce McLernon, John Ransford CBE, and Richard Jones CBE, have been appointed to the senior management of HC-One, bringing extensive experience and expertise in the care sector.

At a time when public spending on care is under unprecedented pressure, HC-One has added expertise to its team to ensure it continues to work in an open and accountable way in partnership with local authorities and other key stakeholders in the healthcare sector.

The three men will work closely with Bob Lewis, head of the Quality and Safeguarding Board and former president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services.

Mr Lewis, said: “The appointment of Bruce, John and Richard is fantastic news for HC-One. Their knowledge and experience will be indispensable in helping HC-One, in partnership with local authorities, to address the issues facing the care sector including an ageing population and funding pressures.

“Their insight and experience will be integral.”
