Issue details

PLACE23 0877 - Business Investment Incentive Scheme –*****

********* is an SME business with a head office based in Harrogate, with an additional 2 clinics, one based in Morley, Leeds and the other based on the outskirts of Hull close to Alanby. They are looking to set up a 3rd clinic to capitalise on the demise of their main competitor in South Yorkshire and they have been looking at various premises here in Doncaster as well as Rotherham and Sheffield. They are looking to address the growing enquiry demand within our region; to further develop partnerships with the NHS locally, who want to contract out this specialist service and trial new technologically advanced treatment methods, to not only address the shortfall in current delivery, but to support huge reductions in future rehabilitation timelines.
******** provide Intensive Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation and launched the UK’s first Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation centre augmented with Robotics and Virtual Reality technology in April 2018. ******* was quickly recognised by the Financial Times, Google and leading European policy makers for technological innovation, leading digital change and challenging an industry sector with a disruptive business model in the field of rehabilitation.
Following the success of the Leeds clinic, **** decided to expand its services and open a second Intensive Neurological Rehabilitation Centre at its clinic in Hull, in December 2020.
There is a long-term plan for the Doncaster site, with a potential lease of 10 years with a 5 year break clause. The Doncaster site will initially start with a small workforce of up to 9 jobs being created in year one, although plans are being developed to expand the team by the end of year 3 to a potential team of 20, creating even more highly skilled jobs.
