The 'excellent' health care practice at Capsticks LLP offers 'industry knowledge and advice which is detailed, practicable and comprehensible'. Rachael Heenan heads the five-partner team, which has been highlighted as being 'value for money'. The practice is providing ongoing advice to NHS Employers, nationally, on issues such as the implementation of the GDPR, changes to IR35, as well as on issues surrounding Brexit. In another work example, Ian Cooper led a team which acted for Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust following a ransomware virus attack. This involved advising the trust on Freedom of Information Act 2000 requests and in relation to ICO investigations. With a 'wealth of experience and the ability to deal with complex issues' head of real estate for the North, Lisa Geary, recently acted for Humber NHS Foundation Trust on the acquisitions of GP practices in Bridlington and Hessle, as well as a surgery in Cottingham. While the NHS is a key client for the practice, it also advises private healthcare providers. Changes to the team include Claire Reynolds' departure to an in house role at Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation trust.  

The 'extremely professional and engaging' public law and health team at DAC Beachcroft LLP is highlighted for its 'excellent service' and 'value for money'. The 'impressive' practice is led by Charlotte Burnett and supported by +Tracey Longfield in the healthcare regulatory team. The 'strong team' acted for Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust on the transfer of blocks of staff residential accommodation into the trust's ownership, this required the transfer of the existing leases as well as advice on rent deposit schemes and rent apportionment. This matter also involved a simultaneous TUPE transfer and the novation of service contracts to the Trust. In another work highlight, Andrea Proudlock led a team which represented United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust on the £10m sale of property at a decommissioned hospital; this involved advice on complex historical title issues. The group is 'very knowledgeable about health systems integration' in addition to be recommended as 'extremely supportive and knowledgeable' at inquests. Former practice head Eve Gregory moved to Clarion and Eleanor Tunnicliffe joined Hill Dickinson LLP.

The 'friendly, approachable and knowledgeable multi-disciplinary' health and social care group at Hempsons are considered to be 'one of the leading firms in this practice area'.Adrian Parker heads up the 'first class team', which handles corporate and commercial transactions, health and social care advice, employment law, healthcare litigation and real estate issues. It is instructed by healthcare providers, social care clients and not for profit organisations, including the Primary Care Commissioning Community Interest Company. The 'commercial and pragmatic' Crispin Pettifer, alongside the 'diligent' associate Oliver Crich, advised Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust on its procurement process for a strategic estates partnership. In another highlight, the 'amazing problem solver' Ross Clark led a team instructed by Cheshire Local Medical Committee to deliver a practice development programme to over 600 GPs and their practices, involving advice on preparation for CQC inspections, the GDPR and procurement. Also recommended are the 'hugely experienced' Stephen Evans and Adam Hartrick particularly in matters related to mental health, and inquests, respectively.
