Problems with Registration Authorities
As a health or social care provider looking after adults or children, compliance with the legislation in your sector is central to everything you do.
Non-compliance could have serious consequences for you, including adverse publicity, loss of referrals or admissions and ultimately enforcement action. If you come into conflict with your regulator, it’s important to seek legal advice at an early stage to protect your business and its reputation. We’re able to provide you with advice and representation in resolving any conflict, whether it be with CQC or Ofsted in England or CSSIW or HIW in Wales.
We have in-depth knowledge of the regulation of health and social care. We can advise you on all aspects of the law in this area, from registration through to enforcement and we specialise in dealing with conflict with regulatory authorities. We’re also experienced in negotiating and have handled more serious cases involving the First Tier Tribunal and emergency cancellation of registration proceedings before a magistrate.
Whether you want to challenge your inspection rating or appeal against a proposal to cancel your registration, we’re here to help.
The experience and expertise of our team of healthcare solicitors in advising health and social care providers means we are seen as one of the leading firms in this area.
If you operate an independent school, we are also able to provide assistance to you in respect of any conflict you may have with Ofsted or Estyn. We act for a number of independent special school providers and would be happy to help you with any difficulties you are facing.
