How We Do It

Perseus is very proactive in how it sources new development and investment opportunities.

Managing Director, Duncan Ford, is at the forefront of Perseus’ land buying activities. His 20 year UK wide experience in healthcare development and acting as development consultant to amongst others, Wm Morrison Supermarkets, BP and Esporta, has instilled an excellent geographic knowledge of the UK which Duncan uses to its full potential.

Through an industry wide network of contacts and pioneering land-finding technology Perseus is able to undertake and execute highly targeted site acquisition strategies, sometimes exclusively on behalf of individual operators.

Perseus’ approach to the modern planning system is very thorough and consultative in its outlook.

Perseus has strong relationships with its team of consultants and works closely with local planning authorities and community stakeholders throughout the entire planning process.

The Perseus team engages with town and parish councils, staging public exhibitions and private meetings with community stakeholders, to garner support for proposals, often regarded as much needed assets by the communities they are intended to serve.  Such initiatives also afford the opportunity to engage with people who don’t necessarily support certain aspects of the proposals at the outset but with whom compromises can often be reached.

This approach has ensured that Duncan has never ultimately failed to obtain planning permission for a single healthcare development in some 45 attempts, including four successful planning appeals.

As a land owner or healthcare operator, you are in safe, experienced and determined hands with Perseus.
