HEALTHCARE workers are needed to provide care and support for people living in West Oxfordshire, according to a company that has just won a county council contract.

Allied Healthcare said it will cover Witney, Carterton and surrounding areas as part of its agreement with the authority.

It said it now needs 30 care workers, along with six paediatric and adult nurses.

Those new recruits will be responsible for supporting patients with medical needs in their own homes.

Narinder Singh, Allied Healthcare’s chief executive, said: “We believe that, where possible, everyone has the right to live independently in their own home and we’re passionate about doing all we can to make this a possibility – even for those with extremely complex needs.

“We’re pleased to have won a domiciliary care contract in Oxfordshire and intend to bring a consistent high-quality of care to the area, as we open a new branch.”

“We look forward to growing the team in this region and helping even more people in the area to live comfortably.”
