Private care home profits ‘outrageous’ - Ní Chuilín
Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said reports that the boss of private care home company Runwood walked away with over £21m in profit are ‘outrageous’.
The North Belfast MLA said:
“It’s outrageous that the boss of Runwood private care home reportedly walked away with an eye-watering paycheck of over £21 million over the last five years.
“People often pay through the roof prices to ensure their vulnerable loved ones are cared for and all the while the companies responsible are profiteering tens of millions in profits.
“There have been huge safety concerns raised about some of the care homes managed by this particular company in recent times including homes in my constituency.
“People with dementia deserve the highest quality of care, that should be the focus for Runwood and its bosses, not making huge profits.”
