To celebrate the National Health Service's 70th birthday, law firm Bevan Brittan will be making donations to NHS charities across the country.

All legal fees earned by the firm advising its NHS Trust clients on 5 July 2018 - the day of the anniversary – will be donated to the Trusts’ chosen charities.

Bevan Brittan is proud to have advised the NHS, and continuously been by its side, since its inception in 1948 when the firm was Bevan, Hancock & Co.

Jo Lloyd, partner and head of healthcare at Bevan Brittan, said:

“The NHS is a national institution, plays a vital role in the lives of millions of people and is one of the nation’s most loved and appreciated services.

"As one of the country's leading health and social care legal and regulatory advisers, we are proud to work day in, day out, with the NHS management teams and clinicians and we wanted to play a part in the celebrations and recognise the incredible work carried out by NHS frontline teams.

“Health charities and volunteers make such a difference in the NHS' support for patients and their families and we wanted to recognise this with our legal fees from 5 July being donated to our Trust clients' chosen charities.

“We hope that the money will make a difference and support community health projects and hard-working health service staff. We are looking forward to presenting those cheques in due course.”

Bevan Brittan has around 200 lawyers working with NHS clients across the country advising on clinical risk and medical law; commercial, infrastructure and property; procurement; workforce and working with the regulator.

The firm has an unrivalled understanding and experience of working with the NHS and its partners – and is currently leading the sector in innovation, with pioneering business models that are supporting Trusts to maintain or raise standards of healthcare in a difficult financial environment.

The firm is Band 1 ranked by both the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 legal directories for its national healthcare practice and recently won Legal Advisor of the Year (Public Sector) and Legal Advisor of the Year (Public Sector Transactional) at the recent HealthInvestor Awards.
