The Team

KPMG is acknowledged as a leading advisor and professional services provider to the UK Healthcare industry with hundreds of professionals daily supporting our clients across the country on everything from clinical strategy, to operational excellence, to digital transformation, to major capital programmes, to economic and financial modelling.
