If the Healthcare sector experienced a slow-down after the 2008 financial crisis, the activity in the sector is currently increasing driven by the country’s ageing population who has a growing demand for health services and by the increasing public spending in the NHS and heathcare system. Key trends in the market are:
- The growth in the healthcare sector is driven by private healthcare including long-term care which represents almost 50% of the sector nowadays.
- The deal market in the healthcare sector has been relatively active in the past 18 months with over 30 completed in the sector including the flotation of Oxford-based Circassia Pharmaceuticals, the disposal of Foresight Partnership to GE Healthcare and the acquisition of Medihome Ltd by Healthcare at Home Ltd
- In the next few years, the healthcare sector is likely to benefit from the rising demand of treatments by the ageing population and the unfortunate recrudescence of long-term conditions
