The chairman of Care UK is John Nash. He is a private equity tycoon and Tory party donor, having donated £21-thousand to Andrew Lansley's office in 2009 and £300-thousand to the Tory party. Nash was subsequently awarded a life peerage.

Care UK make most (about 96 percent) of their income from privatised NHS contracts (worth £400-million a year in 2009).

In May 2014 Care UK pulled out half way through its contract to run Grainger GP Practice in Newcastle after local campaigners complained about the quality of health care provision. Care UK said they were reviewing their business strategy.
