Hazlewoods Health and Care team have been specialists in the sector for over 25 years. For the twelfth consecutive year, we are ranked the number one corporate finance adviser in sub £50m health and care transactions*. Our specialist team offer a full range of services, to enable us to deliver wealth creation to health and care business owners.
We advise many clients on their strategy from early stage to disposal. Services include accountancy, audit, tax planning and mitigation, business strategy, acquisition and disposal advisory.
During 2016 we advised on 47 completed transactions valued at £260 million, in addition to a number that sadly failed to complete. We were delighted to be involved in so many transactions considering the austerity measures and the impact of National Living Wage and other factors.
We act for a wide range of care providers, including individual care home owners, corporate groups, not for profit organisations and private equity houses.
