Independent Health

  • Overview
  • The horizon for independent healthcare providers and their suppliers is crowded with challenges and opportunities.

    Despite increasing pressure on margins due to public sector commissioners budgets, providers need to deliver high quality services in an environment of tougher regulatory scrutiny and reputational damage should they fall short. The workforce difficulties of recruitment and retention, exacerbated by the implications of Brexit in a sector heavily reliant on EU workers, only increase the challenge.    

    However, the potential to add capacity, capability and capital to new delivery models coupled with the increasing transformation towards integrated services within accountable care systems presents real opportunity for innovative health and social care providers. Health technology solutions will have a fundamental role to play, whether delivered directly to consumers or as part of the supply chain to more traditional healthcare providers; however, providers of these solutions, themselves, need to ensure their products comply with regulatory standards so as to ensure patient safety and protect sensitive personal data.

    Bevan Brittan provides expert support for independent sector providers across the health, social care and education sectors. Our teams work closely with providers enabling them to seize strategic opportunities and navigate the operational challenges (whether regulatory, legal, commercial, or reputational).

    There is no doubt at all that they are a top healthcare firm
