Practical and effective legal advice for the healthcare sector

The Spearing Waite healthcare team has the experience to provide a wide range of services relevant to the healthcare sector.  Our clients include operators of individual care homes and large multi-site operators, both small local and leading regional GP practices and dental surgeries.  We also advise on projects such as the development of purpose built care homes and care villages, and specialist healthcare facilities such as onsite pharmacies and dental surgeries as well as bespoke projects such as midwife-led birthing centres.

Spearing Waite provides practical advice upon a wide range of areas within the healthcare sector including:

  • Newbuild care homes and care villages (including partnerships between private operators and local authorities)
  • The acquisition and disposal of care home businesses
  • Property acquisition, leases and sale and leaseback arrangements
  • Projects involving the private sector working to assist local authorities’ care provision needs
  • Corporate matters including restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, private equity
  • Commercial contracts and terms and conditions
  • Banking and finance (including specialist GP practice funding)
  • Employee relations and employment law
  • Compliance with public procurement and NHS procurement regulations

The team is aware of the regulatory structure and understands the need to work closely with all parties involved in a healthcare transaction including health service bodies and funders.
