The health, care and education sectors are increasingly complex: changing demographics are placing evermore pressure on existing services; the need to do more with less is driving price pressure and a blurring of payment models; and purchasers and providers are grappling with the challenges and opportunities presented by technological innovation. Every sub-sector, no matter how caring, has to have an underlying economic structure that can attract capital and turn that capital into high quality, effective products and services. Can a provider successfully sell across disparate budgetary silos? Can they prove outcomes and lifetime value if unit costs appear high at first?

Our health, care and education practice assists clients in understanding this complex landscape. Our team is passionate about the sector and has a broad range of experience across many sub-sectors – a real imperative in a sector that is a melting pot of socio-demographics, economics, politics and technology. During the course of our work we have interviewed thousands of clinicians, commissioners, patients and their advocates, students, providers and policy-makers. We keep up-to-date through our relationships, our engagements and through keeping abreast of sector commentary.
