This year sees CDS mark 10 years as an employee owned social enterprise. The company began trading on 1st April 2011.
CDS transitioned from the NHS 10 years ago under ‘Right to Provide’, with a clear conviction that being an independent organisation would afford more control over how services were delivered and, ultimately, on the quality care patients received.
CDS now employs almost 500 people – a true success story and a reflection of the courage and determination of people involved in those early days, and the contribution of all of the employee owners along the way.
