Position

Rachel is an Associate specialising in public procurement law and in particular within the health sector. She advises on running all forms of procurement exercises to comply with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 and the National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 including strategic project advice and drafting procurement documentation.

Rachel has acted for public bodies facing challenges for breach of the procurement rules and on behalf of challengers seeking to enforce the rules. Rachel has (along with Peter Ware) also worked with the NHS European Office commenting on draft publications and co-presented procurement talks with its director Elisabetta Zanon.

Rachel has extensive experience of working with NHS bodies and other public sector bodies (including local authorities and fire authorities) from the outset of a procurement project to deliver an efficient and robust procedure and her specialism is complemented by her knowledge of NHS contracting and governance arrangements.
