As a specialist bank with a team dedicated to the private and public healthcare sector, we delivered around £120 million in funding over the last year and continue to structure solutions to enable care homes, healthcare organisations and medical professionals to deliver the best patient outcomes and resident experiences possible.
2022 was a year of challenges for many sectors, and the healthcare sector had its fair share of these. There was the tailgate of Covid-delayed treatments and then inflation, energy costs and supply chain issues that also impacted the market. With medical professionals and care home owners juggling such heavy workloads, our team’s sector knowledge and product flexibility played a key part in assisting these organisations.
We supported clients like Northern Healthcare, a specialist independent provider of enhanced supported living services, with a senior debt facility to release capital and fund its growth – ultimately enabling it to help more vulnerable individuals access care in their community.
Similarly, we assisted specialist care homes, CareConcepts and Pristine Care Group with acquisitions to expand their portfolios and broaden their services. We helped Allcures Pharmacy and diagnostics provider Medneo with solutions for their expansion plans and worked with private hospital The Hamptons Hospital to fund new equipment.
All in all, we arranged over 80 transactions for private medical organisations and NHS trusts last year. Our funding ranged from under £100,000 to £12 million, catering for various services including specialist care, children’s services, pharmacy, diagnostics and clinical facilities.
Some client quotes
“Shawbrook’s amazing support and their extensive knowledge of this sector were key elements in their ability to deliver the right funding we needed to acquire Broom Lane.” –
Tanzeel Younas, owner and managing director, Pristine Care Group.
“Shawbrook ensured the process was as smooth as possible, providing expert advice and robust communication. We are delighted to embark on a new relationship that will support our future growth with an organisation that values and recognises the lifelong positive impact of our services.” – Ashley Mancey-Johnson, managing director, Northern Healthcare.
“35% of our medical leases are leased through Shawbrook Bank Ltd. Funding medical equipment this way has enabled the trust to obtain up-to-date equipment without the considerable capital outlay of purchasing the assets outright. We have been customers of Shawbrook since at least 2005, and in that time we have developed a strong relationship. I can rely on the team to provide me with invoices in a timely manner, and any queries are dealt with quickly and professionally. I would wholeheartedly recommend Shawbrook Bank Ltd as a lessor to fund assets. – Ed Pearson, York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
“Having worked with Shawbrook previously, we knew they were the perfect partner for this deal. The team listened to our needs and created a bespoke facility to support our plans.” – Owners of CareConcepts about the acquisition of Marion Lauder House
