Peter regularly advises health bodies on their reconfiguration plans and has supported a number of major consultation exercises as well as acting in several high-profile judicial review cases involving matters such as the closure of hospitals, fluoridation of the water supply and decisions not to fund particular medical treatments.

Peter’s employment law practice includes handling major organisational changes such as the establishment of the UK’s first Academic Health Science Centre and advising on TUPE transfers, redundancy consultation and pension issues.

Healthcare Law Practice:

Capsticks is a specialist health and social care law firm. We are ranked as the number one healthcare firm in both Legal 500 and Chambers legal directories and have offices in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Winchester.

In the NHS we act for national bodies including the Department of Health, the NHS Litigation Authority and NHS England. We represent organisations such as Barts and the London NHS Trust, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We also act out for four out of the nine regulators of healthcare professionals in the UK, including the General Dental Council.

We also act for GPs in their role as primary care providers on a wide range of issues such a new surgery developments, leases with pharmacies, partnership deeds and declarations of trust, practice mergers and acquisitions, establishment of federations, premises funding queries, property litigation, employment law, mental capacity act issues and health and safety advice.

We advise a number of independent healthcare providers and we are very accustomed to navigating the territory between the private and public sector. Our private sector clients include major providers such as Nuffield Healthcare, HCA International, General Healthcare and Ramsay Healthcare, as well as healthcare charities Terrence Higgins Trust, Sue Ryder Care and the National AIDS Trust.

Capsticks Solicitors:

When we say we specialise in health and social care and social housing, we don’t mean half a dozen lawyers sitting in a corner of a big practice. We mean over 200 fee earners with a lot of experience, all committed to delivering excellent services to our clients. Many of them have been with us for quite a number (if not all) of our 30 years. When people join us they tend to stick around: partly because it’s a friendly place to work, but mostly because they find the work genuinely interesting. So when you talk to someone here, you can be sure they know what they’re talking about.
