Your Healthcare provides publicly funded community health and social care services for people who live in the London Boroughs of Kingston and Richmond but our range extends beyond the two boroughs. We are also a founding partner in the Albion Care Alliance CIC group enterprise.
I have been in this line of business all my working life; I just didn’t call it a business.
It was time to realise a reduction in bureaucracy, put the savings generated from this into frontline services and continue to work with local people to deliver services that they said made a difference to them.
It was not without its challenges - hurdles and pot holes doesn’t quite cover it – but it was absolutely the right thing to do.
Keep the faith.
Go for it, the benefits far outweigh the challenges.
Found another way of making mutualism for public services a reality.
Hopefully a continued focus on promoting and embedding mutuals as a valid alternative to some outdated public service models.
Still doing meaningful work...
Despite year on year reductions in our original core contract funding we have still managed to deliver a £3million investment into frontline services since becoming a mutual – that’s one hell of a social return on investment!Back to stepping out now
