Greater Lincolnshire’s Health and Care sectors care and support over 20,000 people.

With the number of 75-year old’s in the county increasing by 19% in the last decade, it is vital that Greater Lincolnshire grows the Health and Care sector. The industry currently employs 24,000 people and brings in £315 million to the local economy but to combat the growing and aging population, the sector will need to improve care homes, health workers, community activity, medical supplies and public transport. Which is why the sector is always looking for hard working and attentive people.

Health And Care

The care sector currently employs around 24,000 workers, contributing £315 million per year to the local economy.

The care sector currently employs around 24,000 workers, contributing £315 million per year to Greater Lincolnshire’s economy and providing services to at least 20,000 people at any one time. Over the last decade the number of over-75s in our area has grown by 19 per cent compared with 12 per cent nationally. Looking ahead over the next decade, the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) population projections show that Greater Lincolnshire should expect numbers in this age group to increase by 34 per cent, or nearly 33,000 people, compared to 27 per cent nationally. Alongside rising demand for health and care services from a growing and ageing population, a key challenge facing the sector is to meet increasing demand for services while operating with constrained resources. So whilst there will be extra pressure put on care services, the GLLEP believe this will present an opportunity for growth through an increased need for more care homes, health workers, community activity, medical supplies and public transport to name a few.
