Nottinghamshrie County Council has rubber stamped plans to sell off six of its 12 care homes.
Runwood Homes are set to buy nursing homes in Bramcote, Carlton, Hucknall, West Bridgford, Mansfield and Worksop. The company will invest £3m into the homes.
Director Logan Logeswaran said the money will pay for extra abeds and to ‘improve the environment of each home’.
“We are confident of ensuring continuity and consistency for all residents in our care,” he said.
