Health and Care

Recruitment, retention and retirement are critical issues for the health and care sector in the current climate of change. When results and reputation are key to attracting investment and collaboration, establishments are ultimately dependent on the quality of their people.

All aspects of employing staff – from contracts, compliance and employment legislation and pensions to performance, dismissal and retirement – need to be handled with professionalism and expert legal guidance when the need arises. We specialise in contentious and non-contentious employment issues and act both for and against GPs, dentists and private care providers.

Our team frequently provides guidance on the transfer of staff under TUPE and on reorganisations and redundancies arising from the merger and acquisition of private hospitals and care homes.

We deal with all aspects of tribunal work, including appeals to the Employment Appeal Tribunal. Our lawyers, who are recognised as leaders in their field by both Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession and The Legal 500, also advise on the use of fixed term contracts when dealing with temporary staff and on the use of bank nursing staff.

We offer expert advice on:

  • advocacy in employment tribunals
  • employment rights and contracts
  • unfair dismissal claims
  • redundancy and reorganisations
  • complex discrimination and whistle blowing disputes
  • senior management terminations and negotiated exits
  • use of fixed term contracts for temporary staff
  • trade union matters
  • TUPE
