The nature of health and social care is changing. We are seeing a greater emphasis on preventing health problems, increasing demand for assisted living, continuing care at home and changes in the type of medical conditions requiring treatment.

As a result, many health authorities find themselves with a legacy of facilities designed to cater for the needs of society from decades ago. Bringing an independent perspective can help reallocate and reuse these assets.

Ryhurst is the only company whose sole focus is delivering vibrant, efficient healthcare estates that respond to these 21st Century healthcare challenges.

From 1996 until 2010 Ryhurst delivered new facilities and infrastructure to the NHS via the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Local Infrastructure Finance Trust (LIFT) schemes. The originators of the Strategic Estate Partnership, Ryhurst established the first SEP in the NHS in England in 2010, the model paved the way for many Trusts to follow and there are now 10 SEPs in operation, Ryhurst being the Private Sector Partner in five of them.

Today, recognising our client and partner’s needs, Ryhurst has expanded and diversified its offer, remaining focussed on delivering only in the healthcare sector, and providing partnership advice, construction, maintenance and consulting services to deliver bespoke and quality outcomes.
