Legal Considerations in Primary Care

Due to links through our property, commercial, external HR and employment teams, we have developed expertise in this particular healthcare sector. It is clear from media reports and our experience on the ground that healthcare is changing rapidly and in particular where finances are stretched. This has resulted in changes in healthcare delivery via new providers, social enterprise development, movements of staff and significantly mergers of GP practices and transfers of staff. Our teams are familiar with regulatory requirements, the systematic boundaries, constraints and opportunities afforded by recent changes and the 5 years forward view.

As one of the leading law firms in South Devon, with a reputation that dates back to 1826, we've had first hand experience of the care home sector as it has developed over the years. We act for businesses of all size in the sector, throughout the West Country, providing a comprehensive service to all of our clients.

Our team has many years of collective experience and is headed by Carolyn Giles an associate with the firm with over 20 years of experience in the healthcare sector in various guises. You'll find that we'll take time to understand what you want to achieve and deliver the services you need in a seamless and cost-effective way.
