LaingBuisson’s Private Acute Healthcare UK Market Report. 6th Edition


“The independent healthcare market has clearly faced challenges, as growth in some traditional revenue streams stalled recently. This has prompted some busy strategising by hospital and clinic providers to best position themselves to meet future demand trends. Generally, providers recognise the need to develop their service offering to attract demand and meet changing healthcare needs of the population, including diversification into new areas for some, targeting new customer segments (both here and abroad), and capitalising on healthy interest in what UK private healthcare can offer. There have been more aligned relationships between providers and funders with a shared objective to deliver high quality healthcare services but a crucial need to do so more efficiently to offer affordable private healthcare, both insurance and self-pay.”

“LaingBuisson currently forecasts nominal revenue growth of around 2-2.5% in the next three years for UK private acute medical care (before taking account of economy inflation), which remains modest. With new capacity coming on stream during this time, most focused within central London, independent sector hospitals and clinics will be challenged to stimulate new demand to sustain overall market supply – whether private individuals, corporates, insurers, overseas sponsors or the NHS – and compete effectively and efficiently on price and quality.”
