According to the Department of Education, as of 31st March 2016, 70,440 children were being “looked after” by the State, a number which has increased by 7.5% in the last five years. An ever larger number of these children are living in residential homes, driving growth in the residential care market..
In our Healthcare Focus report, we discuss the root causes which have led to this population increase. We study the sector’s history and current pressures. We also consider children’s health, and the Children’s Commissioners’ lean towards education and mental health. All before looking at any major transactions in the sector.
Healthcare Focus is a quarterly publication produced by us here at Cooper Parry, to provide you with our perspective on trends within the healthcare industry. Our healthcare team is made up of industry experts as well as global knowledge through our Global M&A partners.
