If you're passionate and want to start a business that makes an impact, find out what healthcare franchise opportunities are available in the UK
Do you have an interest in healthcare and medicine? Franchising could be your way to get involved in this industry. But it’s not all hospitals and GP surgeries — there are many different ways you could run a business in healthcare.
The market for private health and care in the UK is expected to exceed $18.5bn (£10bn) by the end of 2023. As people’s health needs continue to change and the health service fails to adapt, the space for private businesses will continue to expand.
By getting involved with a healthcare franchise, you could be part of this exciting development and create a sustainable and scalable business. At What Franchise, we have a number of healthcare franchises in the UK for you to choose from. However, before you start, there are a few important things you should know.
Your business can provide healthcare at home
Like home care franchising, healthcare franchising gives you the chance to visit clients in their homes and provide them with the support they need. If you set up a franchise with Senior Helpers, your staff will be on the frontline providing care services for the elderly in their own homes, helping them to regain their independence. With ProMedica, emergency live-in care could be one of the services your franchise provides.
The care you provide can be based on different conditions
You could choose to specialise within your healthcare franchise and focus on specific conditions. By doing this, you will be able to tailor the services your business provides to the needs of your clients, giving them greater satisfaction and helping you establish a reputation within the industry. Whether you specialise in helping people with learning disabilities, mobility issues or dementia, your healthcare franchise business can help people in a variety of ways.
Your staff can provide care in care homes
While some people prefer in-home care, others may think a care home environment is best suited to them or their loved one. If you choose, you can be a part of this by providing care home services. Through your healthcare franchise, you can send staff into care homes to support residents with their healthcare and leisure needs.
You can supply nurses for hospitals
As well as helping to staff care homes, your business could help fulfil needs in hospitals too. As director of your own healthcare franchise, you can supply nurses to places that need them. With 247 Professional Health, you can manage staff ranging from nurses to care assistants and more, sending them where they’re most needed.
