UK healthcare sector booming

14th December 2006

The care homes sector appears to be experiencing a development boom, with many new properties in development.

Property agent Colliers CRE, who counts Barchester Healthcare among its clients, has taken on a third surveyor on its healthcare team in order to meet demand.

Rebecca Roswell, formerly of UK Land Estates and Christie & Co, has been added to the Leeds based department.

Investment in the healthcare sector has been boosted in recent years by the enthusiasm of investors to cash in on long leases and government-guaranteed rents.

Colliers has also recently agreed the cash purchase of two surveying firms – Jansons Ltd and Paul & Co – for a total of £3.9 million, reports AFX.
