Law firm, Sintons has continued to build its national reputation in healthcare through its latest major NHS framework appointment.
The Newcastle-based firm, one of the UK’s leading specialist healthcare advisors, has been appointed to the legal services framework of the NHS Shared Business Services (NHSSBS), a body which provides business support services to the NHS with the aim of delivering efficiencies and increased quality.
Following a competitive tender process, Sintons has won a place on the organisation’s legal services framework for the first time, which will see it being able to provide services to NHS Trusts and other bodies across the country.
Sintons has been appointed to all eleven lots tendered by NHS SBS covering legal practice areas including NHS governance and public law, primary care, mental health law, employment law, commercial, property, construction, IT, corporate finance and PFI/PPP projects.
The appointment will be initially for two years from June 1, 2018, with an option to extend for a further two years.
This follows last year’s appointment to the North of England NHS Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC) which works with more than 80 high-level NHS organisations across England.
Amanda Maskery, partner and head of NHS healthcare at Sintons, said: “Our team has worked hard to build its reputation in the healthcare sector, and we have become trusted specialist advisors to NHS Trusts, GPs, dentists and other healthcare organisations across the UK.
“Our latest appointment to the NHS SBS legal services framework is a further endorsement of our capability, expertise and genuine understanding of the complexities of the NHS, which very few other law firms can rival.
“We are delighted to be working with NHS SBS in supporting them to achieve their ambitious cost savings targets for the NHS, and our healthcare team is well equipped and ideally placed to assist.”
