Health

Localisation, cost-cutting measures, public sector reorganisation, abolition of Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts, coupled with the new commissioning and delivery models has led to closer links with the private sector and new challenges.

Local expertise, national recognition - NHS legal services panel

Our expertise in the health sector has been recognised by our appointment to the NHS legal services framework panel, operated by NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS).  We are one of only 22 firms to be appointed to this national framework and will be providing specialist employment advice to a wide range of health sector clients across the East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber regions.
