Quercus has advised on a broad range of Healthcare deals across a wide range of market segments.

The UK’s ageing population and a history of budget cuts has put increasing pressure on the NHS. This coupled with an increasing focus on care in the community rather than hospital has created significant opportunities for the private sector. The result has been significant private investment into care homes, private hospitals and other specialist medical facilities which either sell direct to consumer or subcontract to the NHS to provide additional capacity.

The COVID-19 pandemic has fully highlighted the limitations of the NHS and the necessity for private healthcare provision to provide a viable alternative to the NHS. The inability of the NHS to provide adequate care for non-COVID patients whilst dealing with the influx of those suffering from Coronavirus will have benefitted the private sector creating further opportunities for the future.

The healthcare sector also covers animal healthcare and dentistry, both of which have been very buoyant sectors in recent years with considerable consolidation and significant external investment, in particular from private equity.
