Polkadot Care Ltd based in Nottingham and operated solely by Patrick Quinn who is also director of Great British Care Awards and Learning Disabilities Awards has been wound up with debts in excess of £760,000 which the company is unable to pay.
Patrick Quinn in partnership with Lisa Carr and Mike Padgham set up the social care magazine Care Talk along with Great British Care Awards, all aimed at care staff. It’s unknown if these other businesses are in any way affected although Care Comm LLP financial accounts from 2011 state current losses at over £518,000. Mike Padgham resigned his directorship in 2012.
Home care has been Patrick Quinn’s modus operandi for many years but changes to the Care Quality Commissions rules regarding care operators having ‘lost’ businesses previously will make it difficult for him to set up another care operation.
Quinn’s other company Spirit Care Ltd based in the Midlands recently went into administration with debts of over £600,000.
