About Dr Chai Patel
Early in 2011 Chai Patel took the biggest gamble in his long and successful career as a doctor, an investment banker/entrepreneur and, latterly, as a philanthropist. He agreed to lead a recovery management team for the rump of the bankrupt Southern Cross care home group consisting of 250 homes, 15,000 staff and 11,000 elderly residents. Within 6 months the new business had been re-launched as HC-One, the UK’s third largest care provider, under a new management .
The Care Sector
Over the past 25 years, Chai has led and advised some of the largest UK care providers, including CareFirst, Westminster Health Care and the Priory Group. In 2007 Chai brought back the Court Cavendish name he established in 1988, to create a new health and social care turnaround consultancy.
