Jobs to go at Southern Cross

9th June 2011

The UK’s largest care home operator, Southern Cross Healthcare, has announced 3,000 job cuts.

The company, which is responsible for looking after 31,000 residents and employs 44,000 staff, said the move was essential to address “staff effectiveness” across its 750 homes. Southern Cross said the proposals to reduce the workforce by nearly 7% were part of its programme of change launched 18 months ago. More than 300 nurses and 1,275 care staff are among those set to lose their jobs.
