Healthcare Confidence Index 2020
Read time : 7 mins Added: 19/06/2020
Our Healthcare Confidence Index is based on the outlook of GPs, dentists and pharmacists for the future of their businesses and the sector. The result is shown on a dispersement index (maximum confidence +100 and minimum confidence -100) and is designed to provide a measure of overall confidence within primary healthcare.
This year the overall index has seen its third consecutive year of growth, and while sentiment is still negative at -10 (on a scale from -100 to +100), it is higher than at any time since the survey began in 2011/12. It is important to note that the research took place in January 2020, before the COVID-19 outbreak which has had such a fundamental impact. Nevertheless, it still contains some valuable insights into where healthcare was before the crisis.
Our latest reports include an overview of the results from Martyn Kendrick, National Head of Healthcare at Lloyds Bank and insight from a professional working in each sector.
