At a time of unprecedented change for the NHS, our clients in the acute and emergency care sector appreciate legal support from a team with exceptional industry experience.
We have been advising the NHS since its inception in 1948. Over the last year, our 146-strong team has worked with more than 40 per cent of all acute trusts nationwide, including 35 acute foundation trusts.
Our reputation is based on the fact we understand the issues facing our acute and emergency care clients better than any other law firm. We can manage all your legal obligations promptly and efficiently – allowing you to concentrate on your core target of providing top-class clinical services.
Our services are comprehensive, from inquests to treatment consents, HR policies to outsourcing. We are there to make working lives simpler, not more complex, at every level of your organisation, from the boardroom to the hospital ward.
To date, we have helped more than 45 foundation trusts (acute, ambulance and mental health) achieve foundation trust status, and we have been active in all but one of the acute trust mergers. We are recognised for innovation in every area of our work, from new forms of finance, to new commissioning contracts, to new delivery models, such as social enterprise schemes, joint ventures, and PFI successors.
Unusually for a law firm, we play a role in leading and shaping the market by creating new ways for our clients to achieve their business goals. And because we understand how the NHS works and how it interacts with other organisations, we can help you adapt to the ongoing changes and challenges faced by the industry.
