This sector is an aggregation of disciplines that provides goods and services to treat and care for patients, and meet the health needs of the population. It is one of the fastest growing sectors and forms an enormous part of the UK’s economy. From hospitals and care homes to therapy, doctor and dentist facilities, the delivery of healthcare spans primary care to secondary and tertiary levels.
There is growing demand for healthcare facilities to be multi-functional and provide services for, and engage with, local communities through alternative asset use. As such, there are complex legal, financial and development considerations to take into account, requiring an innovative approach to procurement.
As such, this sector is characterised by demands for better value, quality and performance with sustainability also high on the agenda.
