Welcome to Care UK

You may have met us already. We might be running your local GP surgery or walk-in clinic, or be the person who answers your 111 call. Or we might be caring for an older relative in a nearby residential home.

Our skilled and dedicated teams support and care for older people with diverse and complex needs, for today's busy families needing access to healthcare services at times - and in places - that suit them, and for men and women in the justice system.

All of which makes us the UK’s largest independent provider of health and social care services.
