Colliers: Alison Willoughby and Peter Scholes

Alison Willoughby and Peter Scholes

Commercial real estate company Colliers has appointed two new associate directors to its healthcare team.

Alison Willoughby and Peter Scholes both join the firm from Fleurets. Willoughby has more than 15 years’ experience in the sector providing transactional advice for providers of residential, nursing, dementia and specialist care across the north of England and Scotland. She will be based at Colliers’ Leeds office.

Scholes has a decade of experience and will provide valuation services across all healthcare asset types out of Colliers’ Manchester office.

Adam Lenton, head of the healthcare team at Colliers said: “With an ageing population and the subsequent acute illnesses that come with this, there’s increasing demand for care-based property advice across private and NHS providers. There are significant challenges to the market currently, not least providing care in the right building, but also in the right location. Also, as across all sectors, there’s the challenge of meeting sustainability demands and environmental concerns in healthcare property, alongside increasing operational costs, which is why it’s essential we invest in providing the right expertise for our clients.

“We’re pleased to welcome Alison who has a vast range of experience in handling complex transactions for clients including the National Care Consortium and Bondcare ensuring that businesses are able to continue to provide valuable services to their communities throughout the process.

“Peter will continue to work closely alongside Alison and our existing clients, providing the specialist advice that our clients need during what is a difficult time in the market.”
