Social care advice line

Hempsons has launched a free advice line for social care providers – 01423 724056.

The social care team at Hempsons is well placed to assist with a wide range of legal issues including areas such as CQC inspections and CQC reports, employment issues, local authority safeguarding alerts and disputes with local authorities.

Hempsons’ social care advice line is open between 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday and offers up to 15 minutes of valuable preliminary advice on a range of issues social care providers face including:

  • Regulatory expertise
  • Health and safety
  • Employment and HR law
  • Real estate
  • Corporate and commercial
  • Dispute resolution

Associate Philippa Doyle commented: “Social care providers are working in an increasingly challenging market and come across a whole range of issues often linked to regulatory bodies or management of staff.  We find that on many occasions a telephone call to a specialist lawyer who understands their environment, and has come across similar issues, is able to offer not only useful advice, but can quickly give some peace of mind.

“With increasing integration between health and social care, the benefit of talking to a solicitor from Hempsons is not only their expertise in specific areas of law, but also a full understanding of the NHS and wider political environment you operate in.”
