Strategy

The Ditchley Group prides itself in identifying and procuring assets which enhance shareholder value. We aim to find assets that have an established management team and strong existing cashflows.

We carry out extensive operational, clinical and financial due diligence to ensure that our acquisitions meet our stringent standards. This is a critical phase in ensuring that the assets fit’s our portfolio.

We are straight-forward to deal with and work hard to build trust with vendors, striking the right balance between the duty of care and the business of care.

In a sector where discretion is a cornerstone this approach is seen as a critical success factor.

Following acquisition, we focus on implementing a change management plan which is highly sympathetic to the existing culture of the home but also embeds key Ditchley systems and processes to improve care standards and stakeholder value. We enhance value by implementing a resident centric business plan that unlocks latent value through synergies across the group. We utilise our skills in care plans, procurement and administration to achieve this aim.
