Spotlight on Healthcare

What was once a fairly niche asset class within the property industry has now become one of the largest growth areas for developers and investors alike. By 2021, the population of the UK over the age of 65 is estimated to be 13 million, with a shortfall of 150,000 market-standard healthcare bed spaces*.

In short, the demand for high-quality healthcare developments has never been higher and looks set to continue increasing.

The Beaufort team has considerable experience of providing development finance to the healthcare sector, from high-end retirement developments, to extra-care and supported living.
