As a valued stakeholder we wanted to share some exciting news with you, however you don’t need to do anything.
In 2012, Air Products confirmed its decision to sell its Homecare business in the UK. Since then, Air Products has been looking for a suitable buyer and we are now at a stage where we are able to disclose more details.
Air Products has now reached an agreement under which it will sell all of its homecare business interests in the UK and Ireland. The new business, to be known as Baywater Healthcare, has been established by Duke Street, a long standing investor in mature, pan-European businesses, with considerable experience in Healthcare.
From 1st December 2013, Baywater Healthcare will take over the operations of Air Products Healthcare. The new organisation will be headed up by our General Manager, Adam Sullivan, who takes up the role of Chief Executive, supported by Air Products Homecare management team, many of whom will be familiar to many of you.
Patients will be informed by letter in the coming days and will be reassured that there is no need for them to do anything different – our patient helpline remains the same and there is no change to our team, our response times or our equipment.
No action is needed by you as our contact details, clinician’s helpline and the team you normally deal with are remaining the same. There is no need to resend equipment orders for existing patients as all our patient data transfers. More news will follow over the next few weeks; in the meantime we look forward to continuing our business relationship with you.
