Health and Social Care - NHS/Public Sector

Public health and social care today

The health and social care sector is facing unprecedented pressure in seeking to improve outcomes for the population against a backdrop of increasing demand from an ageing population, with increasing number of long term conditions and the rising costs of drugs and equipment.

Against this backdrop commissioners and providers of health and social care are continually looking to improve patient and service user outcomes, within a safe and open environment, that is easy to access and is financially affordable.

How we help our clients

With over 60 years’ experience working in healthcare, DAC Beachcroft is regarded as market leaders in the provision of strategic, commercialregulatory, employment and clinical risk legal advice to providers and commissioners in the sector.

Our national team of expert lawyers already provide over 300 public sector and independent healthcare providers and commissioners with truly market-leading innovative, practical legal and governance advice to enable organisations to focus on the delivery of high quality, safe patient care.

What we are known for

A wealth of health foresight

We’re forever anticipating, translating and articulating the consequences of legal and regulatory change for healthcare clients, such as the development of health and social care integration, industry-wide consultations or the impact of legislative changes affecting the sector.

Intelligent. Imaginative. Inspired.

We’re a pioneering practitioner of healthcare law. Our team of expert partners, lawyers and specialists are able to apply years and years of insight and intelligence to craft imaginative solutions to resolve clients’ healthcare challenges today – and beyond.

Refreshingly articulate advice

What’s best for our clients is what matters most. We’re fearless in standing up for our clients and their ambitions, but are refreshingly clear with our advice for clients too.

Count on us to be there

We always aim for client management that’s so seamlessly fluent that our clients find it hard to tell where their team ends and DAC Beachcroft’s begins.
