Health and social care

You’re working in an organisation that is delivering critical social care or health services. With continuing advances in the quality of care and an ageing population, you need all the help that you can get to ensure that you deliver more for less. This requires a careful balancing of existing and emerging priorities, so your decision-making processes and governance procedures are critical.

As an organisation that has always advised colleagues in respect of a full range of social care services, we have significant experience of all the legal issues that arise in this area. We not only advise on the issues that directly affect how you deliver your services, such as the management of staff and premises, but also the legal implications of clinical decisions in the area of social care, such as the exceptional but necessary deprivation of a patient’s liberty.

With the current need to integrate the delivery of health and social care services, we are increasingly acting as an important catalyst, helping to facilitate the joined up solutions that are now required. In particular as the NHS, and health services more generally, need to work ever more closely with colleagues in the social care sector, our considerable and wide-ranging experience of providing wide cutting edge social care advice will be of significant value.

If you feel that we could help you to deliver the highest quality health and social care services then please contact a member of our Health and Social Care Sector Group.
