Good legal advice can save organisations money, but it can also help to protect their reputation, meet regulatory requirements and deal with new challenges such as setting up joint ventures, and effectively working with other organisations across an ICS. As the NHS continues to evolve, the role of legal services may become even more important in navigating the changing landscape.
NHS organisations rely on external legal advice for everything from the mundane to the extraordinary – from complex HR disputes, patient safety incidents, through to decisions around tendering services. This award recognises that external legal service providers can play an important complementary role to in-house legal staff, offering expert advice and additional capacity at times of stress.
Judges are looking for a partnership where legal services and expertise has helped NHS organisations get the results they were looking for whilst delivering value for money. The winners of this award will be able to demonstrate how sound advice and high integrity led to positive outcomes
- This award is open to any third or private sector legal services provider which works in partnership with an NHS organisation
- Projects and partnerships must demonstrate evidence from the past two years up until the awards deadline date
