Bevan Brittan is delighted to have been reappointed to the NHS Commercial Solutions legal panel for a second term across all categories.

The new panel consists of 19 firms and is set to run for four years. Bevan Brittan is one of ten firms to be reappointed to the core legal services lot from the original panel which began in 2015.

NHS Commercial Solutions is, with East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative and NHS London Procurement Partnership, a member of NHS Procurement in Partnership, a collaboration of the four NHS procurement hubs. This strategic partnership between the four collaborative procurement organisations is designed to step up delivery and improve services to customers, thereby aiming to offer significant procurement benefits to NHS trusts in England.

The aim is to drive through greater system efficiencies, avoid duplication of effort and ensure that trusts receive the maximum benefits of collaborative procurement. The framework is open to all NHS organisations in the UK, as well as the wider public sector.

The categories of law are as follows:

  • Corporate and Commercial Law
  • Employment Law
  • Property Law
  • Primary Care
  • Mental Health Law
  • Healthcare Projects
  • NHS Governance and Public Law
  • Health Law

Commenting on the appointment, Sharon Renouf, Partner in Bevan Brittan’s Healthcare team, who leads the relationship with the NHS collaborative procurement organisations, said:

“We are delighted to have been reappointed to this important panel and looking forward to working again with the NHS Commercial Solutions team and our many clients who use this framework. Bevan Brittan works with all the healthcare frameworks across England and Wales advising healthcare providers on a range of corporate, commercial, regulatory and workforce issues.”

Bevan Brittan has a strong and long-established track record in advising health and social care providers, including two-thirds of NHS Providers and a third of NHS Commissioners and was one of only three law firms ranked Tier 1 for Healthcare in both Chambers and Legal 500 directories.
