He has worked in the NHS as a cancer care lead for adults and paediatrics, improving medicine adherence and quality of life standards. He was previously a board director for the National Clinical Homecare Association and has worked collaboratively with the Department of Health and Social Care and developed strategic relationships with regulators.

‘As we work to expand the scope of our service, we need to challenge ourselves to be the best we can be. Sanjeev’s excellent credentials and broad range of experience will help us to think big,’ said Martin Jones, Home Instead UK chief executive.

‘People’s homes will be the hospitals of the future. We already have much in place but our sector needs to be constantly looking ahead in order to meet the needs of clients in the future.’

Kaushal, who will join Home Instead’s executive leadership team, added: ‘This is a really exciting time in the sector, over 65s now outnumber 15-year-olds for the first time. We are seeing the impact of the integration of technology in how care is delivered and there is a massive opportunity to transform the range of care services delivered without compromising on quality.’

Kaushal holds an MSc in Hospital (Advanced Healthcare Management and Pharmacy Practice) from Kings College London and also an improving global health, quality and safety certificate from Harvard University.
