Extra Care & Retirement Communities


The first 14 editions of Philip’s market report on integrated housing and care were published by health and care specialists LaingBuisson, up until October 2016.

Domiciliary Care UK Market Report 2013


The 12th edition of Philip’s homecare book offered the most comprehensive business guide to a growing marketplace for keeping older and disabled people in the community, then worth well over £10bn a year. As did his previous editions, the report covered a wide range of social care and health care services with a main focus on homecare. It continued the study of self-directed care and the increasingly important personalisation agenda – all within the context of the major changes then being experienced across UK social care.

This report was essential reading for organisations purchasing homecare or other domiciliary care, as well those providing care services in the community and those considering entering the market. It was the best way to keep abreast of latest developments, bringing readers who were already active in the market up-to-date while also offering newcomers a full breakdown of the marketplace and how it operated.

It offered a blend of quantitative data and authoritative analysis which provided a unique and exclusive overview of the market as well as being an invaluable reference work and data source for business planning.

The series was discontinued after this 12th edition, which of course is no longer for sale.

UK Pathology Markets 2002


Featuring an HIV virus on the cover, this edition of Philip’s pathology book was sponsored by a major diagnostics company, and followed his first edition six years earlier. Building on his period leading the marketing and sales for the largest chain of private pathology laboratories in the UK, it covered the markets for private, NHS and corporate pathology, including addressing the opportunities in NHS pathology, recent technical developments and accreditation.

The UK Pathology Market

The 1996 pathology book was the first project Philip undertook as an associate of what was then Laing & Buisson.
