Supporting your health and care business strategy is our priority.

Our specialist health and care team can provide you with a full range of advisory services across accounts, tax and corporate finance.

As a business in the healthcare industry, the development of your business requires tailored accountancy advice, and we have over 25 years’ specialist sector experience for you to benefit from.

 Understanding you

We act for care providers, including individual care home owners, corporate groups, not-for-profit organisations and private equity investors. 

Hazlewoods Health and Care Corporate Finance Lead Advisory and Transaction Services teams have continued to see an increase in deal volumes in 2019. 

The team has advised on 166 completed transactions valued at £477 million already this year. Deal flow remains high despite the pressures on margins arising from fees not keeping pace with staff cost increases, the ongoing uncertainty on medium to long-term recruitment, as we still wait to see the shape of the agreement negotiated in leaving the EU.

Testimonial from Neil Davis and Clair Leonard

"We had no experience of selling a business and had already spoken to another agent before Hazlewoods were recommended to us. We never looked back. John Lucas felt we could achieve a significantly higher value than previously suggested by others and he was proved correct. The quality of the purchaser was also important to us and Hazlewoods did not disappoint. His team helped us through the process and we achieved a much better result than we could have anticipated. We cannot recommend them highly enough."
