 Understanding you

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 and knowledge for you to benefit from.

For care operators looking to sell their business, deal activity remains high. Hazlewoods Healthcare Corporate Finance Lead Advisory and Transaction Services team advised on 166 completed transactions valued at £477 million already this year. This is despite the pressures on margins arising from fees not keeping pace with staff cost increases, the ongoing uncertainty on medium to long-term recruitment. Whatever stage in the business lifecycle you are at, we can help you with specialist advice and guidance.

We were pleased to win the 'Business Advisors and Accountants' award at the Care Talk Social Care Premier Supplier Awards 2021

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."
