Overview

NHS organisations rely on external legal advice for everything from the mundane to the extraordinary – from complex HR disputes through decisions around tendering services to cases involving both UK and EU law – such as the recent one involving withdrawal of treatment for a severely ill baby. 

Good legal advice can save organisations money but it can also help to protect organisational reputation, meet regulatory requirements and deal with new challenges such as setting up joint ventures, working with other organisations within an Accountable Care System or Sustainability and Transformation Programme.

As the NHS changes, we work alongside our clients to steer their way through an ever evolving landscape, whilst appreciating their focus has, and always will be, with their patients first and foremost.

Our aims are straightforward: 

  • to support and guide the NHS through challenging times;​
  • to help identify solutions and better ways of working to ease the financial and political pressure which the NHS is under and to keep patients safe; and
  • to have the ability to advise on any issue and any transaction in the health sector.
