How healthy is the Healthcare sector?

The number of hospital and health centre projects to have gained detailed planning permission has declined by -50% compared to a year ago. Extensions of hospitals are down -20%, extension/refurbishment is down -80% and new build is down by -50%. The total value of all projects compared to a year ago is down -71%. 
By contrast the volume of on-hold hospitals and health centre projects, has improved compared to last year - down by 63%, total value down 48%, and total units down by 60%. 
January 2017 project starts compared with a year ago have improved. The number of projects has increased by 12%, units have increased by 88% and the value of these projects has increased dramatically by 785% (due to the Specialist and Critical Care Centre mega project starting in Wales. Exclude this project and the increase is 134%).
