Principal Care in Florida

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by amazing__lobster, Jun 4, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is a long shot:

    I'm owed some money by a somebody who owns a company called Principal Care agency which is registered in North Wales. Recently the owner has gone over to the USA to open a branch over there.

    They have owed me money for three months, and I am now going to go through the CAB to get this money back, but before I do that, I would also like to speak to the manager, as if I can, I think I'll get my money back quicker.

    So, I'm trying to find out the contact details of the company, but all I have to go on is the information below, which I got from a government website (apart from the names obviously, but they are on there), but if anybody could have more joy than me, I'd appreaciate a PM.

    The companies UK registered name is Principal Care Agency Limited and its registered at Trinity House, Anglesey, North Wales.

    The new branch is in Florida. The owners name is Alison Betty Whitworth (also an ex-RAF nursing officer), who normally goes by the name Betty. They also have a daughter called Sara / Sarah Whitworth, who may have something to do with the company. She has also owned several companies previous to this one, and apparently they always end up going bust.

    I cannot find out the company name, but it will be something to do with a nursing agency and they have only just moved over there these past couple of months.

    I've tried using Yellow pages, but not to much success. I'm wondering if there is anybody on this forum who could possibley have better results than me, using the name and maybe playing around with the UK company name. Or maybe somebody knows how to find a nursing company owned by "Whitworth".

    This might be a longshot (although not impossible with ARRSEs track record), but using the internet I at least managed to find out what part of the US the company was located in.

    Cheers,

    And if any mods want to me to post the link where this info is available, I'll happily do so - I'm not doing it at the mo, because I want my money before they start getting harrased by ARRErs!
     
  2. It seems likely that the manager and/or her daughter would be licensed to practice nursing in the US if they are involved in a staffing agency here.

    The agency itself will probably have to be licensed as well. I'll ask my wife later how to check up on this, as she's an RN.

    I know this information is accessable from the net. The information given for the nurse's license includes her address if I remember correctly.
     
  3. There are links for registering as a foreign nurse at Florida Hospital which if you follow a few links takes you to a page where you can search the florida department of health registrations of medical professionals.

    This of course assumes that she will register with the Department of Health. None of the Whitworths currently in the system match the ones you are looking for. It takes many months to get through the licensing scheme for any professional organisation in the US, particularly with foreign qualifications so they may not be in the system yet, but when they appear you will be able to get a home or work address.

    I have tried a number of the background search sites that search public records in the US, but it appears they have not been in Florida long enough to appear in the system.
     
  4. Thanks a lot for the help everybody.
