Health and care regulation

We deliver advice and support to keep your organisation compliant and performing at low risk levels. If something does go wrong, we keep you in control.

Patient care now comes with a huge information challenge. The digital revolution and a wave of new regulation brings issues at every level, from care volunteers to directors. We will help you stay on the right side of the Information Commissioner.

Whatever your issue, we will have seen it before – from investigations and enforcement through to inquests, public inquiries, civil claims and insurance disputes. Our specialists in CQC, HSE and police enforcement will work hard to achieve the outcome you need.
