An ageing population is creating ever greater demand for healthcare. Public sector budgets and private sector provision are likely to increase at above inflation rates for the foreseeable future as existing treatment options struggle to match the volume and complexity of modern chronic disease types. At the same time, scientific research, driven by the benefits of underlying technological change, is creating unprecedented options for treatment targets.
Cross-disciplinary involvement in medicine from fields such as computer science, nuclear and optical physics and materials science is contributing to an unprecedented extension of medical technologies from the microscopic to the robotic.
Our investment interests in the healthcare sector encompass the following sub sectors:
