The Process From Property Search Finance To Fit Out.

The Process From Property Search Finance To Fit Out.

Whether you are looking at opening your first healthcare practice or are looking at growth plans for your current practice, it can be daunting to know what to do first. Where do you start to look in terms of a location? How big do you need it to be? How will you finance this project? These are all questions that are common in any growth or startup project.

The fit out or refurbishment of a healthcare practice can also pose questions: How many rooms? What will the patient flow look like? What is the profitability per square metre? What does this even mean?!

During this 90 minute interactive webinar, our panel of healthcare business consulting experts answered all of these questions and any others that may be acting as a roadblock for realising your growth plans. Let us assist you in taking the next steps in the right direction, geared with the knowledge and confidence to execute your vision.
