He said of his appointment: “Hempsons is an ambitious firm which is reflected by the recruitment drive across all levels and teams. I am looking forward to being part of the organisation during an important time of change for the healthcare sector.”

Dr Angela Bell, a qualified medical practitioner, will undertake a paralegal role in Harrogate where she will support lawyers on healthcare litigation matters. Angela will be starting her legal career at the firm, having worked as a doctor in the NHS for the past 15 years. Angela’s clients are set to benefit from her medical background and insight into healthcare and the NHS.
