Hospitals & Care Centres
The UK hospital market is estimated to be worth £75bn and is forecast to grow at 2% p.a. for the next five years. Although largely comprised of NHS practices, the UK hospital sector also includes many private hospitals and care centres. The private hospital sector in the UK is relatively small compared to other countries, but it is growing, with an increasing number of patients opting for private healthcare in the face of longer wait times and reduced service from the NHS.
Polestar has worked with charities, private hospitals and clinical commissioning groups to raise funds to enable the expansion of services as non-state organisations provide cost-effective solutions, with excellent outcomes, to the NHS as well as meet the needs of private patients from both the UK and overseas. With considerable experience and excellent relationships with senior debt teams and mezzanine funds to enable cost-effective funding packages, Polestar is well placed to assist.
