CQC adviser buys Worcestershire home

Rajwant Dau, who has worked as an adviser at the Care Quality Commission for many years, has bought a care home for the first time.

The Leys is a CQC-rated ‘Good’ care business that is registered for 20 service users. It is situated in two acres of land on the outskirts of the large village of Alvechurch in northeast Worcestershire.

The business has been owned by Amit Midha for the last 15 years and was recently brought to market to allow him to “move on to other ventures.”

Rajwant Dau said: “As a first-time buyer, I felt The Leys Residential Home was the one for me. Living locally to the home, the size, the caring staff, and the high level to which it has been in operation were all factors that contributed to my decision to become a business owner in the care sector.

“I have spent over 10 years working behind the scenes for the NHS in combination with the local commissioning bodies and general practice, so I have a full breadth of all that is ahead of me. I’m extremely excited to take over The Leys and to dedicate my time and energy to ensuring it remains one of the best in the area!”

Paul Reilly, Director – Care at Christie & Co, said: “We’re continuing to see a good appetite for smaller, ‘Good’ CQC-rated homes, especially those with a registered manager. The market in the Midlands continues to be a haven for both new entrants and experienced operators.”
