Health and Social Care

Our growing and ageing population and dispersed towns and villages are driving opportunities for economic growth in Greater Lincolnshire’s health and care sector, which currently employs 58,000 people and is worth £2bn per annum to our economy.

There are many opportunities which include developing and embedding innovation across the NHS, through the social care sector and a range of third sector services rising to meet the demands of individuals seeking their alternative methods of care and treatments.

Overall, the Greater Lincolnshire population is set to grow by 6% between now and 2025, in line with the national rate of growth. The health and care sector is already an important element of our local economy. The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership sees our ageing community as an opportunity rather than a problem, therefore the need for this sector is set to grow over the next 10 years.

We work closely with small to medium businesses that are developing innovative and appropriate products and services for the future. Working with counsellors, life coaches, dentists, well-being centres, mental health support services, care homes, domiciliary care providers, nursing agencies and many others in the health and social care sector. There are also a growing number of adult training opportunities, to support long-term workforce recruitment and retention.
