“Operating in an unregulated marketplace, it is important that homecare providers implement quality assurance systems of the highest standard. Bluebird Care has set an example to other providers on how best practice can prevail in an unregulated marketplace.”
Independently-owned in Ireland, but part of the UK franchise model, Bluebird Care implements the quality standards from the UK which operates in a regulated marketplace.
“It is only a matter of time before the homecare market in Ireland is regulated and we actively welcome regulation. But until then we will continue to appraise our own standards against regulation in the UK, through our own internal audit processes and also by external auditors such as EIQA. This is only correct and fair and represents the ethos of our company and our people,” says Brian MacGoey, Managing Director.
