• Bevan Brittan provides expert support for independent sector providers across the health and social care sector. Our teams work closely with providers enabling them to seize strategic opportunities and navigate the operational challenges (whether regulatory, legal, commercial, workforce or reputational).

    The horizon for independent healthcare providers and their suppliers is crowded with challenges and opportunities.

    It's a highly skilled and knowledgeable team that has been uniformly excellent, providing in-depth guidance on complex issues.

    Chambers UK, 2023

    Despite increasing pressure on margins due to public sector commissioners budgets, providers need to deliver high quality services in an environment of tougher regulatory scrutiny and reputational damage should they fall short. The workforce difficulties of recruitment and retention, exacerbated by the implications of Brexit in a sector heavily reliant on EU workers, only increase the challenge.    

    Health technology solutions will have a fundamental role to play, whether delivered directly to consumers or as part of the supply chain to more traditional healthcare providers; however, providers of these solutions, themselves, need to ensure their products comply with regulatory standards so as to ensure patient safety and protect sensitive personal data.
