20/02/2017

Bevan Brittan has been shortlisted in two categories of the prestigious HealthInvestor awards.  The firm has made the final lists for the ‘legal advisor of the year – public’ and the ‘legal advisors of the year – transactional (public)’ categories.

The firm has extensive understanding and experience of working with the NHS and its partners, and in the past year alone has worked with 59% of NHS Providers and 25% of CCGs.  The firm has some 200 lawyers working with the health sector, ranging from commercial advice to clinical risk, Court of Protection, governance, and property and planning work.

Bevan Brittan are clear market leaders in the Strategic Estates Partnership (SEP) programme, having closed procurements for SEPs at Yeovil, Isle of Wight, Burton, Royal Cornwall and Hinchingbrooke and being currently instructed on a further five such projects.  The firm also acts for nine of the Vanguard status New Models of Care projects, and is pre-eminent in advising on infrastructure transactions such as the £140m New Papworth PFI and the Sandwell PF2 project (the only PF2 to close in the health sector).

Other notable transactional work includes helping Yeovil District Hospital (YDH) NHS Foundation Trust establish Symphony Healthcare Services Limited, a ground-breaking integrated model of care to enable local GP practices to integrate into a new organisation supported by the infrastructure of YDH and have access to such services as finance, IT, estates, and HR.

Commenting on the shortlisting, Sharon Renouf, Head of Health at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted to make it to the final few for our public health sector work.  We have a long tradition of supporting and working closely with the NHS and its partners, and the sector forms a hugely important part of our practice.  We look forward to what promises to be a great occasion, whatever the outcome, at the awards night in June.”
