Healthcare Confidence Index 2018


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.

The results from the latest survey are now in, and after a dip in the trend last year general business confidence has improved from -31 to -21, the highest result to date.

For a breakdown of results, download the latest reports via the links shown right, which include a general results overview from Ian Crompton, Head of Healthcare Banking Services at Lloyds Bank and commentary from an appropriate business professional. A few examples of result are given below.
