The Orders of St John Care Trust expands with acquisition of Elmfield Care

The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) is pleased to announce its expansion through the acquisition of Elmfield Care.


Elmfield Care is the latest addition to join OSJCT’s growing family and offers residential, dementia and respite care for up to almost 200 residents across three purpose-built luxury care homes: Old Sarum Manor in Salisbury, Wiltshire; Flowers Manor in Chippenham, Wiltshire; and Nodens Manor in Lydney, Gloucestershire. 


Dan Hayes OBE, CEO of OSJCT said: “We are delighted to be extending our offering to include this group of sustainably built, superbly operated, private pay homes.  Elmfield Care exemplifies the highest standards of care and values, which we share at OSJCT. Existing residents can be safe in the knowledge that they will continue to be supported by an organisation with an excellent track record.


This acquisition opens doors to a wealth of opportunities for the wider organisation.  It grants us access to innovative management practices and advances in building design and will provide invaluable insights into other examples of best practice.  As a not-for-profit care provider, it strengthens our financial foundation, empowering our charity to better serve those for whom we care.


“We are looking forward to sharing learnings with Elmfield Care and will endeavour to apply these to the wider Trust for the benefit of all those living and working with us.”


Chris Babington, former CEO at Elmfield Care, commented: “We are proud of the achievements of Elmfield Care and the compassionate care our dedicated teams have shown to our residents.   I am delighted that the combination of our LNT purpose-built, energy efficient homes and management systems with the strong values and ethos of OSJCT will ensure fantastic outcomes for our residents and team members alike.”


Richard Lunn, Managing Director – Care at Christie & Co, who facilitated the sale, commented: “This is the second major acquisition OSJCT has concluded in recent months as it grows and develops its care footprint across the UK. These best-in-class assets will only strengthen the charity’s position as a top care provider.”


The Orders of St John Care Trust will retain its charity status, with any residual profit generated by Elmfield Care donated to OSJCT to be reinvested into care and the employees who provide it across the whole Trust.
