Ward Hadaway's award-winning Public Sector team has won a top accolade for its partnership working with the NHS.
NHS organisations and those who work within them are faced with myriad challenges every working day.
From patient care and obligations to property matters and staff issues, senior managers within NHS organisations need to be able to juggle a wide range of priorities without letting any of them slip.
As a result, what you need when it comes to legal support is a firm that works as hard as you do.
Ward Hadaway’s healthcare team is nationally recognised as one of the best around, with leading experts underpinned by a dedicated and substantial support base.
We work with NHS organisations across the country day-in, day-out so we know what kind of issues you face and the pressures under which you work.
We are always up to speed with new developments and new thinking. Much of our work is ground-breaking and of Pathfinder status.
We always work alongside our clients to identify new ways of working which increase efficiency and effectiveness and we run an extensive training and seminar programme.
We don’t blind our NHS partners with science or lapse into technical jargon; instead we aim to give you the very best advice delivered in a language that you can understand.
