Private Acute Healthcare in Central London, 2020 Market Report -

DUBLIN--()--The "Private Acute Healthcare Central London Market Report" has been added to's offering.

The sixth edition of this industry standard Private Acute Healthcare - Central London Report, sponsored by the Medical Protection Society, is a trusted barometer of the market, and vital reading for anyone involved in this highly competitive market, whether as a hospital/clinic provider, an investor or as an advisor.

The report paints a picture of a market in a time of change. Now worth 1.6 billion (2018), the market for private acute care in Central London has grown by 3.4% since 2017. While Private Patient Units (PPUs) remain a significant driver of growth, independent hospitals have also returned to growth, reversing the downward trend of 2016 and 2017.

Growth for independent hospitals has been underpinned by a resurgence in the embassy market, especially a move back to London of Gulf patients. In this, London has benefited from a corruption scandal in Germany and also from positive efforts to build relationships with organisations and individuals in the Gulf.

PPUs continue to benefit from a strong reputation for specialism for complex patients, perceived higher quality of care and lower prices and this is bringing in business, particularly from private medical insurers which are attracted by the value for money offered.

Both independent hospitals and PPUs are attracting more self-pay patients, though growth continues to be modest. Generally, when patients choose to pay it is for treatments, such as cataracts or orthopaedics, at the lower end of the price range. Otherwise, the trend to 'mix and match', e.g. paying for a private scan and then waiting for treatment on the NHS, prevails.

At the same time, the competitive landscape is becoming more intense. There have already been a host of new entrants (One Wellbeck, Schoen Clinic), and others will follow by 2021 (Nuffield at Barts, the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, Cleveland Clinic) and this will expand capacity. This raises questions about future profitability, even if revenues rise. It also points to the possibility of future consolidation and restructuring.
