Bupa ready to bid for Oasis Healthcare after talks with dentistry chain's management and shareholders
Bupa is considering launching a takeover bid for dentistry chain Oasis Healthcare.
The private healthcare giant is understood to have held preliminary talks with Oasis's management and shareholders about a possible deal.
The acquisition of the private-equity owned business would further bolster Bupa's growing network of dental practices.
In 2014 it bought London's Barbican Dental Care, and two years previously snapped up a major chain of dental practices in Australia.
