Christchurch Group

At the time of acquisition, the Group operated from adjacent facilities in Northampton in a community setting. Since investment Christchurch has more than trebled in size through: acquiring Birmingham-based Hunters Moor; opening a full-service neuro-rehabiliation unit in York; and opening a new step-down community facility in Bedford.

Christchurch has also developed a transitional living space in Northampton, extending the care pathway.

An estimated 135,000 people are admitted to a hospital each year as a consequence of a brain injury in the UK and Christchurch Group has seen demand for its services increase.

  • The Group has acquired Birmingham-based Hunters Moor, increasing its current capacity by over 60%.  This makes Christchurch Group one of the largest independent neurological rehabilitation providers in the UK.  This acquisition follows the purchase of a respite centre in York in 2012.
  • Christchurch Group won 'Complex care provider of the year' at the HealthInvestor Awards 2012.

“Sovereign are very supportive of the business’s strategic ambitions and bring a wealth of industry experience, insight and advice. Our relationship is constructive with frequent discussions around the direction of travel and specific issues which may arise.”
