Issues Monitor: healthcare

Issues monitor healthcare
Each edition of Issues Monitor pulls together and shares our firms' industry-wide knowledge to help you quickly and easily get briefed on issues.

The Health Sector is operating in a highly pressured environment.


  • The public’s expectations about patient care and health results are increasing.
  • Facilities are stretched through increased demand.
  • Clinicians and medical staff want improved pay, conditions and balance of life.
  • Hospitals are operating with constrained budgets.


The work programme the Sector now needs to undertake presents significant challenges. 


This requires the support of expert practitioners across a wide range of disciplines – skilled business advice, deep health experience, project leadership, technical support and the insight to manage change successfully.  We can provide this expertise.

  • Stronger contribution of non-clinical services to patient care and improved health outcomes.

  • Higher return on investment from capital assets, equipment, goods and services.

  • Shifting resources and investment to the front line.
