With ever increasingly close collaboration between local authorities and CCGs and with health and social care law and practice constantly evolving, lawyers need to have an outcome-based approach to ensuring that the service users experience joined-up and seamless services.
Sharpe Pritchard’s solicitors have experience in advising PCTs, CCGs, other NHS bodies as well as local authorities. A number of our lawyers have worked in-house in the public sector and specialised in health and social care services.
We are on both the NHS Legal Framework and the HealthTrust Europe Legal Services Framework Panel and regularly advise public sector bodies on the use of and application of standard conditions and call off contracts – both from the point of view of the purchasing organisation and the supplier – and also advise on the use of the Department of Health’s non-mandated conditions for public health contracts.
The services we can offer include:
