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/
We have particular experience in advising NGOs, campaign groups, charities and other not-for-profit organisations on the many regulatory issues they face.
Our experience includes advising environmental and other campaign groups on the legal aspects of campaigns, using law to advance campaign aims, advising campaign groups on proposed changes in the law and on legal aspects of consultations.
We advise charitable clients on the requirements of charity law, and on the role of the Charity Commission. This includes the regulatory powers of the Charity Commission and the Electoral Commission.
