Care of the Elderly: Analysis, statistics, UK market survey and report

Cover - Care of the Elderly: Analysis, statistics, UK market survey and report

Care of Elderly People: UK Market Survey 2011/12

This new and fully updated edition of Laing & Buisson’s unrivalled market report on the UK’s elderly care market presents revised analysis of trends in this £24bn sector of the county’s service economy. With the majority of information derived directly from healthcare market intelligence provider Laing & Buisson’s own surveys - carried out throughout 2011 - the data published within this highly respected report is unavailable anywhere else.

 

Care of Elderly People: Report and survey summary

In a polarised market, providers with high exposure to state-funded customers continue to find their margins squeezed as councils and the NHS seek to make economies in the face of reduced central government funding. Providers with a
focus on private payers are finding market conditions more benign, despite the recession. What’s more, this twenty-fourth edition comes at the close of a year filled with major challenges and changes in the sector where the high-profile collapse of the country’s largest provider has paved the way to a very different corporate environment.


The report provides the only independent, authoritative, comprehensive and up to date assessment of the present state and future prospects of the long term care market in the UK. As such it is essential reading for independent providers, care commissioners, regulators and policy makers as well as those people in the investment sector with an interest in this massive marketplace.
