Knight Franks Annual Assessment of UK Healthcare Development 2015

  • There is a growing shortage of elderly care homes in the UK, underpinned by a net loss of 189 homes during the 12 months to September 2015.
  • While the supply of care beds continues to diminish, underlying demographic trends point to an increase in demand, which presents opportunities for care home developers and investors.
  • Greater London remains the top ranked county in England & Wales in 2015, benefiting from the strength of underlying demand and shortage of supply.
  • There were however, some surprising results. Two Welsh markets - South Glamorgan and Powys - and West Yorkshire made it into the top ten, driven in particular by limited supply and low land values.
  • In Scotland, the Central area moved up the rankings to first place on the basis of low levels of supply. Meanwhile, the Highlands & Islands, the top ranked county in 2014, slipped to third position.
