The Private Acute Healthcare Central London Market Report offers a comprehensive analysis of the growing private acute healthcare sector in England’s capital. The report presents the latest market trends, economic commentary, and market potential for healthcare providers, consultancies, policymakers, investors, and various stakeholders.

Now in its tenth edition, the report emphasises the Central London healthcare market's impressive resilience amid economic hurdles like interest rate hikes and inflation. Despite these challenges, the market surged, boasting a record 17.8% growth in total revenue, surpassing a total market value of £2bn for the first time. This growth surge is attributed to capacity expansion and the addition of major providers like Cleveland Clinic London, OneWelbeck and Nuffield Health at St Bartholomew's Hospital. Such robust growth underscores the market's strength and the importance of a nuanced comprehension of its dynamics.

This report also presents the latest insight into NHS Private Patient Units (PPUs), revealing a dynamic landscape marked by both challenges and opportunities. The main challenge that NHS PPUs have encountered is difficulty in accessing facilities and services to treat private patients. Despite this hurdle, the overall revenue for PPUs witnessed a notable growth, reaching £406 million with a 25.3% increase between 2021 and 2022.
