Update on MS respite care centres
Published date: 23 Sep 2011 at 12:34PM
The MS Society can confirm it has been unable to agree terms on the transfer of Helen Ley and Brambles respite care centres to MS Respite & Care Services Ltd.
However, the Society has received interest from a new potential provider for the two centres and will now enter into discussions with them.
Simon Gillespie, Chief Executive of the MS Society, said: “While discussions with MS Respite & Care Services Ltd may have ended, the MS Society will continue to seek to transfer the centres to an alternative provider who can provide care for people affected by MS.”
Negotiations between MS Respite & Care Services Ltd and the MS Society ended after neither organisation could agree a mutually acceptable outcome that met Charity Commission regulations.
Simon Gillespie added: “We will keep guests, residents and staff updated as things progress.”
The charity can confirm that work is still progressing to transfer Woodlands, the respite care centre based in York, to Christchurch Court Ltd.
