HeadWindsCare provides a wide range of operational, financial and management services for care providers ranging from sole traders to mid-tier corporates.
The operational problems can be varied but most likely rooted in reduced occupancy caused by a poor CQC inspection and/or Local Authority intervention for example in response to safeguarding issues. Both can result in an admissions embargo. Investigating the issues, creating and rapidly implementing a remedial action plan is essential. We have significant experience of this.
We can review and where appropriate improve management information, developing and running short-term cash forecasts, building weekly KPI performance dashboards, linking short-term cash forecasts to an integrated trading model etc.
We can swiftly execute solutions to improve working capital management and visibility of business performance linking to cash needs.
We provide hands-on/hands-off solutions to support and manage the client’s finance team during periods of uncertainty which can include coaching and training.
We can provide management support in a variety of ways from recruiting staff to taking on non-executive directorships.
