The operator of four Cheltenham care homes has gone into administration leaving up to 60 jobs at risk.

Camelot Healthcare runs the Broadleas, Dalkeith, The Hawthorns and Pinehurst homes.

The joint administrators, PKF Accountants and Business Advisers, have appointed Krissimon Care to run the homes until a new owner can be found.

PKF said the homes have 79 beds between them and it is committed to keeping them open and maintaining standards.

'Some redundancies'

Kerry Bailey, from PKF, said there was no prospect of the homes closing.

"The intention is very much that they will remain open and continue to trade as they have done previously, but hopefully with some improvements," she said.

"The majority of staff will continue to be employed by the care homes.

"There will be some redundancies but at the moment we are still assessing that, but it is our intention to keep them to an absolute minimum."

The joint administrators said that all residents, staff and relatives had been sent notification and would be kept fully informed.
