Social Care Consulting (SCC) is committed to improving the fortunes of smaller care providers. By providing access to industry specific, expert knowledge and experience we support smaller care providers to find cost effective and practical solutions to care industry challenges, when they need it most.

Typically, larger care providers employ experts to support them to manage their business. A head office team of finance, marketing, operations or facilities managers or a quality and compliance team is standard for corporate providers but often out of reach to individual care home owners. A subscription to SCC offers a cost effective, alternative to employing a head office team, giving you access to tailored, expert support, however and whenever you need it.

Our subscription packages include 24/7 telephone support, virtual management, financial planning and operational assistance as well as on site consultancy and crisis management should it be required.

The care industry is fast paced, complex and relies on relationships. By subscribing to our consultancy, you giving us a unique insight into your service, your people and your challenges. Over time this will enable us to build a relationship with you and your people so that we can work together to make your service the best it can be.

Our director, Nicola Palladino is registered nurse with an active PIN. During her career, Nicola has delivered management and operational support to private hospitals, individual care homes and portfolios of care homes for some of the largest health & social care providers in the UK. Likewise, she has worked with smaller care providers enabling them to maximise profitability and build business resilience to manage future challenges.

Nicola also spent some time as an inspector for the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This experience coupled with her care home career has given her the unique ability to find practical, cost-effective solutions, to meet and maintain regulatory compliance for any provider of health & social care.

In recent years SCC has provided consultancy services to care providers to include support to register with CQC, challenge inspection reports and respond to warning notices and enforcement action.  We have worked with individual care providers to maximise their earning potential through effective business, financial and marketing strategies targeting private sales. We have also supported home care providers to negotiate profitable contracts with local authorities and clinical commissioning groups.

The value of knowledge and experience cannot be underestimated. Consider your SCC subscription as a necessary and vital business investment to safeguard your existing care business whist working to maximise your future potential.
