Healthcare Advisory Services

We deliver a comprehensive range of advisory services to support our clients in all aspects of the funding, delivery and operation of healthcare estates.




As a trusted partner to health care provider organisations around the world, we deliver a comprehensive range of advisory services to support our clients in all aspects of the funding, delivery and operation of healthcare estates.

From our long experience as advisors to the healthcare sector, we fully understand the unprecedented challenges our clients are facing in terms of funding restraints, increasing demand, rising costs of drugs and treatments and high consumer expectations in terms of their quality of care and the environments in which they are treated. Working in close collaboration with client teams, clinicians, designers and contractors, our aim is to ensure our clients’ facilities are efficient, safe, fit for purpose and financially sustainable.

We base our thinking on both current and future needs to ensure the solutions we deploy will be relevant in years to come. This ‘Future Ready’ approach ensures that large capital programmes have genuine longevity, with flexibility designed-in, in readiness for tomorrow’s challenges in terms of health trends, changing demographics, technological advances and climate change.

Our team of experts recognises the significant challenges our healthcare clients face. Rapid developments in Science & Technology, as well as organisational changes, create an environment that is complex and uncertain. Pricing constraints due to government policies and increasing competition, as well as the rising costs of Research & Development and increasing legislative pressures add to the complexity in an African context.

We work closely with clients, not only in the healthcare industry, but also the pharmaceutical and biotechnology   environments, understanding the business challenges and bringing solutions, and international best practice.
