White Oaks, a leading provider of services to the care and residential living market, has launched a new range of business solutions.
White Oaks, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland’s healthcare division, is now offering a choice of four service packages, providing transparency for care homes and residential care communities when they are considering using the services of a specialist to support their business. The four support packages are:
- Procurement Only: Access to Compass Group’s significant buying power, along with its surety and due diligence, plus the advantage of global and national deals.
- Procurement and Consultancy: Contains all of the Procurement Only package with the added benefit of consultancy from in house Compass specialists including Dietitians, Culinary, Health and Safety and Marketing. All work to improve the resident experience and nutrition, food quality, reduce waste and other additional costs.
- Fully managed services model: Peace of mind that comes with the full White Oaks service where the White Oaks team can take on all elements of the service delivery including the management of labour.
- Steamplicity and Esteem: Delivers a fully catered solution with the advantages of using the only fresh micro-steaming food cooking system in the UK market which incorporate its unique patented valve. This ensures that high quality nutritious food is able to be consistently delivered, as well as reducing food wastage and providing flexible ‘out of hours’ catering support options for healthy, fresh food.
Steve Cenci, healthcare managing director, Compass Group UK & Ireland said: “We believe that our new offers really reflect the dynamic and changing needs of the care home and residential care sector. Outsourcing catering or food services provision can be very daunting for care organisations, often accompanied by a sense of ‘loss of control’. We hope that by having a choice of four business solutions that we can help to simplify the process and provider a clearer way forward for clients.”
