HSJ shortlist Hempsons for Legal Services Provider of the year award

Hempsons has received more high-profile acclaim for our work on accountable care and system transformation – this time from the Health Service Journal with its first ever HSJ Healthcare Partnership Awards.

Hempsons has been shortlisted for the “Legal Services Provider of the year” award for our continuing support to the major system transformation of health and social care underway in Greater Manchester. The area has emerged as one of the most progressive health systems in England, driven partly by a unique devolution deal for its health and social care services, and Hempsons has been centrally involved in many of the key projects.

Commenting on the shortlisting news, commercial partner Jamie Foster said “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for our work in Greater Manchester for the first ever HSJ Partnership Awards. It’s a significant endorsement of the leading edge work we have been doing as we continue to lead the way in facilitating the development of accountable care systems across the country”.

Launched in 2017, the HSJ Healthcare Partnership Awards aim to recognise and celebrate the best partnerships with the NHS, shining a spotlight on projects and long term support programmes that work for the benefit of the NHS and its patients. The winners will be announced at the Royal College of Physicians on 8 March.
