  • Health governance and risk management

    Good governance and risk management is important in any organisation, but especially for those working in healthcare. We are well versed in addressing the challenges presented in the healthcare setting advising on clinical risk and governance to organisations ranging from hospitals to major private healthcare providers, small independent clinics and specialist areas such as medical teams in elite sport. With our expertise in risk management and healthcare, we’re able to help organisations looking to put effective governance in place and adopt systems for good practice across a range of areas.

    We have worked with health providers to prepare for CQC inspections as well as helping to prepare policies around record keeping, safeguarding and data governance. Using our experience in insurance litigation we have also advised private and public sector clients on appropriate indemnity provisions being in place to provide suitable protection in the event of a legal claim. Our holistic approach builds upon our wide ranging experience in healthcare to give our clients bespoke governance support needed in an ever-changing landscape.
