The demands of an ageing population combined with the need to rein in National Health Service budgets have helped healthcare outsourcing to become a major growth sector.

Analyst predict £20bn of contracts will be awarded to private companies in the next few years as GP commissioning gains momentum and the government pursues cost efficient alternatives to hospital care.

Bringing in private companies, whatever it is diagnostics or  practical care is already standard practice in the UK market.

A multitude of business are crossing into the medical area from consulting, technology and business services in concerted efforts to capitalise on the expanding potential that shifts in structure and culture have brought.

In the global context, business opportunities have never been greater. In OECD countries between 6% (Mexico) and 15% (USA) of GDP is currently spent on health.

At Cavendish, we understand the space, the people, the regulation complexities and the importance of intellectual property on a worldwide scale.
