INCREASING DEMANDS ON HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

Alongside the pressures created by public health crisis like Covid and social trends which create service demand, life expectancy is rising. The UK faces the challenge of caring for an aging population with increasingly complex needs. It’s not just about dealing with physical health but also managing challenging conditions such as dementia, mental health and providing care to help people live independently for longer.

According to Government data,by 2038, it’s expected care requirements for over-65s in England will be up by 57% since 2018 and 29% for ages 18-64. Due in large part to general population growth and more younger adults reporting disabilities.

Alongside that demand, the cost of health and social care is increasing. Whilst the cost might be met largely by the NHS and local government, it’s businesses who are coming up with innovative solutions and providing many of those services. AI, software, advanced technology and research capabilities are critical to their success.

Healthcare is hot when it comes to M&A activity; there are sophisticated investors from the UK and overseas looking to grow their portfolios across the sector. Our Deals team has extensive experience advising on numerous transactions across the broad spectrum of health and social care. From medical products and devices to assisted living and mobility products and services; from SaaS-based health-tech to children’s homes; from dentists and pharmacy chains to older people care and mental health services. Cooper Parry Corporate Finance gives award-winning advice.

TESTIMONIALS

medigold health

“I had high expectations of Cooper Parry and the CP Deals team, and I wasn’t disappointed. The whole process, from engagement and scope discussions to report completion was professional and slick, but also friendly. The output diligence reports, both financial and tax, were extremely insightful and of exceptional detail and quality, despite the challenging timeframes. Throughout the work, the analysis and advice provided by Ed and his Transaction Services team were commercial and pragmatic. We’re very pleased with the outcome, and I highly recommend working with the CP Deals team.”
