Learn more with the UK Healthcare Market Review 32ed report
The 32nd edition of LaingBuisson’s UK Healthcare Market Review is vital reading for independent providers, commissioners, advisors and investors active in the UK’s independent healthcare and social care sectors.
Published in September 2020, against the backdrop of Covid-19, the Review offers the first allround view of how the pandemic and the resulting lockdown has affected different sectors of the independent healthcare and social care market in the UK.
The report shows the extent of the impact on care homes for older people. However, there has been less impact on, and certainly no existential threat to, providers of care to adults under 65, homecare and housing with care. Many independent hospitals and healthcare facilities were signed over to the NHS throughout the spring and summer of 2020.
The new edition also includes a completely revised and updated politics and regulation section. This outlines current Government policy and NHS England’s strategy of moving towards integrated care. This creates new opportunities for the independent sector to work with the NHS, though the tendering of services foreseen by the Lansley reforms looks likely to end on the legislative scrapheap.
