The UK Diagnostic and Ambulance Services industry has expanded over the past five years. Britain's ageing population has driven sustained demand for industry services. Older people visit health-care providers more often than younger people, and those providers rely heavily on diagnostic and ambulance services. Government expenditure has risen to meet greater demand, but an inundated NHS is limiting industry growth. However, backlogs in the public health-care system are not all bad news as members of the public become frustrated and are more likely to choose pricey private sector services.
This industry covers health care that is not provided by hospitals, medical doctors or dentists. Firms help doctors diagnose their patients by providing specimen analysis and imaging. They also operate ambulance services and blood, sperm and organ transplant banks.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
