Virgin Care to run children's services in Devon13th July 2012
Virgin Care has been named preferred bidder to run the £44m children’s services in the area served by NHS Devon and Devon County Council.
They put the services out to tender after the transforming community services programme, requiring primary care trusts to divest their provider arm. Virgin was selected ahead of two consortiums involving NHS mental health trusts. The PCT said in a statement that it believed appointing a “single accountable organisation” provided the “best opportunity to maintain and strengthen the integration of the services”.
