SOUTH EAST REGION
CARE HOME REPORT 2017 – 2027
Our latest report takes at a look the massive challenge that is waiting for care providers and local authorities to provide enough care homes beds for the ageing population over the next 10 years.
The 75 plus population will grow by 37% in England by 2027, and by 43% in the South East, which means the region will need to provide 30,000 new beds, or 3,000 each year – when there has been little or no increase during 2016.
And if this already sounds too difficult, supply is commissioned in a local authority, not across a region, and the report details how varied the challenge is for each authority.
