We are instructed by Professor Stephen Hawking, Dr Colin Hutchinson, Professor Allyson Pollock, Professor Sue Richards and Dr Graham Winyard in a proposed judicial review of the Secretary of State for Health and NHS England's introduction of non-NHS bodies to run health and social services without proper public consultation and full Parliamentary scrutiny. These non-NHS bodies, called “Accountable Care Organisations” could be given “full responsibility” for NHS and adult social services. Further details on the case can be found at https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/jr4nhs-round2/
Many of our clients are campaigning organisations. We have experience in advising NGOs, campaign groups, charities and other not-for-profit organisations on the legal issues they face in campaigning. This experience includes co-ordinating a number of different interest groups within complex legal actions. We are committed to providing excellent and cost-effective legal services to these groups, with particular sensitivity to the financial pressures that these groups may face.
Our experience includes advising large and small environmental and other campaign groups on the legal aspects of campaigns; and on using law to advance campaign aims, advising on proposed changes in the law, and on legal aspects of consultations, advising NGO clients in civil cases involving trespass, damage to property and disruption as part of protests.
