Interserve Healthcare services empower clients like Ben to live fulfilling lives and achieve life goals, as well as providing peace of mind for their families with whom Interserve co-design care for their loved one.

Managing Director Ian Mulholland said: “None of our work would be possible without the care and commitment of our people – from care staff working in people’s homes to our head office teams. We really appreciate the commitment, effort and pride our staff take in delivering quality care.

“In 2017, we continued to work hard to promote a culture of compassionate care and to provide staff with the training they need. We know how challenging some home care environments can be and we never underestimate the dedication that people show in providing a great service.”

He added: “What our clients tell us is really important to us. We plan to focus on gaining more feedback and listening even more carefully so that we can meet their needs. We believe passionately that this is only possible through a continual focus on quality and safety – this remains a promise to our clients, customers, staff and shareholders.”

Building on the strengths and achievements in 2017, within this current year, Interserve Healthcare focus will include:

Develop new models of care to meet new opportunities including broadening its clinical capability to deliver more services and new services and increase the use of technology to improve outcomes for clients.

Improve branch nurse retention and review the role of the registered nurses who work in Interserve Healthcare’s branch network to make sure it is a diverse and fulfilling role.

Continue to focus on clients through increased contact with our branch staff, particularly Interserve’s registered nurses and further develop its engagement capability to find new ways of talking to clients and hearing what they think about their care.
