The MCG Group have acquired nursing agency StaffAid, a specialist agency providing nurses and carers to care homes, hospices and hospitals across the Midlands. Having just been listed as ‘one of the UK’s Top 100 mid-sized companies to work for’ for the third time, the MCG Group is a forward-thinking collection of companies providing people-focused services. As well as expertise in the healthcare sector it also operates in the aerospace and aviation, construction, education, and technology sectors.
The acquisition completed on 28 May and supports the Group’s continuing expansion. StaffAid will sit alongside the MCG Group’s existing healthcare brand – MCG Healthcare, which specialises in placing primary and secondary care professionals; including nursing, doctors and allied health professionals (AHP) to public and private sector healthcare settings. The Group also acquired Poppy Nursing and Care Services Ltd in November 2020.
Colm McGinley, CEO of The MCG Group, said of the acquisition: “We warmly welcome StaffAid into our Group and we’re excited to see what this new acquisition will bring to our business. This is our second healthcare acquisition in the last seven months and will further strengthen our presence in the healthcare market. Whilst we continue to grow organically, this acquisition further supports our five-year growth plans and our vision to be recognised as a Group of companies people love to work for and with.”
Nick Carroll, managing director at StaffAid said: “This acquisition has come at the right time for both parties. Since our inception in 2016 StaffAid has successfully built an enviable reputation for providing a high quality service supported by competent and reliable agency staff. Without doubt, The MCG Group is the right organisation to further develop our success story and I wish everyone involved the very best of luck.”
Ash Higgs, director of MCG Healthcare, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to further broaden the reach and range of the services we can offer, both to our existing and future client base. Our priority is to maintain the high levels of service and patient care that StaffAid are known for, while introducing some of the benefits our Group can offer.”
