KHES for Social Care
KHES medical have been looking after care homes and domiciliary care services for the past 10 years. We base our service on helping you achieve what you want, rather than telling you what you can’t do!
We have built lasting relationships with our care home managers and owners through supportive HR and Employment Law advice. We understand how Social Care works and can provide HR support that recognises the complexities of CQC administration (CIW in Wales and the Care Inspectorate in Scotland) and the changing nature of service delivery. We provide a personal and professional service that is cost effective, flexible and ensures you get the right result for your service.

“It has been a really difficult year for us but we have unearthed a lot of issues and this has allowed us to build the sort of team we need in our service. I’ve really appreciated the KHES approach and support which has been clear and firm. Many homes have found it difficult to make decisive HR and management decisions during the outbreak. I’m certain that our approach has been important in ensuring our service has remained safe and Covid free”.
We can provide HR admin support, get references for new staff, check criminal records, draft up offer letters and issue contracts and provide you with all the legal advice you need to run your home your way.
We cover the general mix of HR issues that managers have to deal with on a daily basis and offer a one-year minimum length contract (with three months notice of intention to leave after that). Prices start at £165 per month for a service with less than 25 staff.
