BBC Regional News: Virgin Care given £700m health contract in Bath and North East Somerset
Politicians, union representatives, and commentators on social care provision have criticised the awarding of the contract, which will come into effect on 1st April 2017. Protesters against the awarding of the contract marched through Bath on 29th October.
Local residents had already launched a 38 Degrees online petition when the procurement process began, which is still open for signature.
Rescare will monitor developments in Bath and NE Somerset, and bring news of the awarding of any similar contract awards.
