We support health organisations across the UK, delivering a wide range of legal expertise and support.
With health law and practice constantly evolving, our lawyers champion an outcome-based approach to ensure that the service users experience a journey that is seamless. We are always mindful when advising on the legal aspects of a project, that the cornerstone must be the experience that the service user receives from our clients.
We have expertise in advising Central Government (DHSC), Primary Care Trusts (PCTs), CCGs, NHS Foundation Trusts, other NHS bodies as well as local authorities and a number of our lawyers have worked in-house in health and social care services.
We are appointed to the NHS Legal Framework 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.
