Replacing ageing stock with new ‘fit for purpose’ homes is a key challenge for the elderly care sector and one that pre-dates the Covid-19 pandemic. Rising land prices, the cost of construction and prohibitive planning policies have all contributed to an environment where not enough new homes are built and older stock stubbornly holds on to its market position – despite a lack of suitable room sizes and amenities.
As we enter the ‘new normal’, the care sector is once again under scrutiny but it also has an opportunity to change the way it is perceived – and funded – by making a strong case for what ‘best in class’ looks like. To help define these terms, and to debate how the market can drive innovation and investment, HealthInvestor UK is partnered with Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank to bring together this panel of market experts.
