Annual UK Care Sector Survey and Roundtables

22 February 2019

As we have been doing in the autumn for the last eight years, Barclays, Knight Frank, Pinsent Masons and Caring Times conducted an electronic survey of sentiment in the residential care sector. The survey provides an invaluable insight into sector changes in thought, sentiment and practice over recent years.

The 2018 survey was used as the basis for a number of regional Roundtable discussions, involving leading personnel in the sector, some of whose opinions and conclusions are shared in this report.

Senior sponsor members have also included their thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing the sector this year along with quotes from some attendees on how they perceive the sector might develop in 2019.
