Our experience and history

We deliver home care that makes a real difference to people’s lives and we’ve been doing it for over 40 years. Today, we’re the UK’s leading provider of domiciliary care, supplying over 17 million hours of life-enhancing care every year.

We have the benefit of deep expertise across a wide range of home care services – from visiting care to very specialist services. Our experience includes caring for children with behavioural needs, support for people with disabilities, reablement care for those recovering from illness or injury, and expert clinical care by community nurses.

Delivering better care since 1972

Allied Healthcare began life in 1972 as a one-branch home nursing service in Staffordshire. Since then, we’ve grown to become the nation’s biggest home care provider, with over 140 branches across England, Scotland and Wales and a subsidiary in Ireland. The network of branches we’ve developed allows us to manage local teams of healthcare professionals, giving you local touch points and the benefit of a truly personal service.

It’s reassuring to know that we employ twice as many carers as our nearest competitor, and our carers are 30 minutes or less by car from 90 percent of the UK population – so we’re always here to meet your needs.

A joined-up approach

To provide a consistent, informed and responsive service, we develop good relationships with social work and community health teams, customers’ families and advocates, and the GP practices that provide referrals to our services.

We’re an approved healthcare supplier to the NHS, and 93 percent of local authorities have contracted us to be a care provider in their area – a result of the great partnerships we’ve developed over the decades.
