FIFTY jobs have been saved after a Salisbury care agency that supplied home care nursing staff across Wiltshire was sold out of administration.
Prime Care Agency Ltd, of Durrington, entered administration on May 1.
Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell, of business rescue and recovery specialists Begbies Traynor, were appointed joint administrators.
The business was sold to Primecare (Salisbury) Ltd.
The positions of all 50 employees have been protected.
Mrs Palmer said: “Prime Care Agency Ltd was a profitable business but had encountered difficulties due to creditor pressures.
“Following our advice, the firm has been restructured and we expect it to trade successfully into the future.”
Prime Care Agency Ltd was established in 1997 and provided domiciliary care nurses under contract to local authorities.
