Bevan Brittan has been named as one of twelve law firms on the panel providing services to members of the NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC).
This is the first time Bevan Brittan has been on the panel, with the arrangement to last for the next four years.
The NOE CPC is hosted by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) and provides collaborative and bespoke procurement solutions to the public sector. It is one of the leading players in collaborative procurement within the NHS in England.
Members of the legal panel will be available to provide advice to NOE CPC members across a broad range of legal areas including healthcare, employment, contract & commercial law, property law, NHS governance & public law, and mental health law.
Bevan Brittan partner Michael Boyd, who is Head of the Leeds office, will lead the NOE CPC relationship, said: “We are very pleased to have been appointed to the panel. Having opened our Leeds office 18 months ago, we have established good relationships with a variety of NHS organisations across Yorkshire, Humberside and the North East. This panel appointment is a great opportunity for us to build on that and extend our client relationships further, serving the needs of NHS bodies right across the region.”
Sharon Renouf, Head of Health at Bevan Brittan, said: “We greatly look forward to working with NOE CPC members. Healthcare is a key part of our business as a firm and we are proud to provide services to NHS bodies throughout the country. Being appointed to this panel now means we have a place on all Trust and CCG healthcare frameworks in England. It’s an important and exciting appointment for us.”
