Twenty20 Capital Support

We were excited by the prospect of supporting this recognised care brand, continuing its strong legacy and market position whilst providing outstanding service to customers. Complimenting our already established portfolio of healthcare brands, it further enhanced the value we could contribute to health and care commissioners.

On acquisition, the business had key challenges in achieving target staff numbers within critical health and care services, exacerbated by external market forces. Our expertise allowed us to renew the focus on employee value proposition, recruitment and retention and provide a more commercially sound structure and framework, in turn supporting the recovery and improvement of front-line services.

We supported the management team, and broader workforce, by streamlining the support teams and reinvesting in essential services with a ‘healthcare first’ approach. Since collaborating and strengthening operations, the business has more than doubled its profitability.

As part of our commitment to further transform the brand, in 2022, we acquired a medical services business, which specialises in providing staff to prison custody clients and compliments HCRG Care Group’s exceptional offering.
