As a healthcare organisation, you operate within a sector defined by structural and technological advancement and continual change.
In this commercial environment, proactive legal advice is essential to anticipate key opportunities and mitigate future risks.
We understand the complex challenges that healthcare providers often face from commissioners, regulators and service users. The solicitors in our Healthcare team draw on decades of sector experience to deliver practical legal advice that supports your commercial and regulatory objectives.
For many years we have advised a wide range of healthcare organisations, including GPs, GP federations, dentists, pharmacists, care homes, private consultants and healthcare management companies.
Clients value our service because we deliver straightforward legal advice, both on time and on budget. We are also known as one of the few firms based in the North West offering specialist partnership advice and advice to aspiring and established GP federations.
