What can I do for you?
I head our team of 16 health sector employment specialists. My work covers all aspects of strategic and operational advice, including NHS reorganisations, disputes with medical staff and very senior managers as well as complex discrimination and whistleblowing matters.
Currently, I am advising numerous trusts on the employment aspects of national and local reorganisations, acquisitions and mergers and contracting out exercises. I am providing advice on TUPE, the Cabinet Office Statement of Practice, redundancy and contractual flexibilities. I am also advising on the employment implications of clinical commissioning and of the Health and Social Care Act.
Supporting my clients’ objectives
Clients want employment advice that is practical and focused, and that doesn’t reflect negatively upon them or their employers. Clients tell me that they feel secure that I will protect the interests of their organisation so that they can concentrate on their day jobs rather than focusing on the distractions of employment disputes.
My greatest sense of achievement comes when a client averts expensive and protracted litigation as a result of a quick telephone call or a short email exchange, which in turn strengthens the relationship.
What do others say?
Our clients regularly comment on the value of our advice and the strength of our relationships.
In the words of Chris Nash, Associate Director of HR & Workforce Transformation at Worcestershire Health and Care Trust: “As an HR team we have built up a close working relationship with Jog Hundle, Martin Brewer and Anna Youngs primarily and I believe this is essential given the complexity of the majority of cases we refer to them. One of them always maintains the overview of a specific case so we have built up excellent relationships and consistency of approach. I cannot fault the legal advice we receive which is always well reasoned, well laid out for us to consider and timely. I have complete confidence in the advice I receive from them.”
Chambers UK 2010 states: "Jog Hundle advises health clients in a personable and conscientious manner."
The Legal 500 UK 2010 states: "Jog Hundle has tremendous knowledge of the NHS and healthcare sectors.
"The Legal 500 UK 2011 states: "Jog Hundle and Martin Brewer go the extra mile, give an answer instead of a set of options, are extremely responsive, are not afraid of a challenge, and make clients feel safe."
Chambers UK 2011 states: "Jog Hundle is praised for her work advising NHS employers on equal pay claims, organisational changes and redundancies: 'She goes above and beyond the call of duty and I know she won't miss a thing'."
