Unlocking capital - what is the role of construction in the future of healthcare?

GRAHAM’s Healthcare Director is confident that construction has a “positive role” to play in shaping the future direction of the healthcare sector but warned the industry must be “smarter” in turning capital projects into a reality.

Keith Hayes delivered his expert analysis as part of a wide-ranging panel discussion during Place North West’s ‘Healthcare Property Update’ event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester in May. Over 130 delegates attended the session to listen to the engaging debate on how the changing face of healthcare will influence property and construction throughout the North West of England.

Despite the differing backgrounds of the panellists, there was consensus among the group that cross-sector and regional collaboration would be key for healthcare to maximise efficiency and seize the opportunities presented by new technology.
