About Healthcare Counsel

Healthcare Counsel Ltd is a niche practice that advises health and social care providers about regulatory matters, often in the context of a crisis.  Due to an increase in work recently, it is seeking an additional lawyer to join its principal.

About you

Ideally, you will have experience of working as a healthcare regulatory lawyer.  However, it is far more important that you:

  • Prefer working independently and remotely.
  • Prefer work that involves close attention to detail.
  • Learn new areas of law quickly.
  • Have a demonstrable interest in the health and social care sectors.
  • Have a clear and persuasive writing style, with proven success in written advocacy.
  • Have proven experience of analysing large volumes of information.
  • Can provide examples of communicating confidently and effectively with a wide range of people.
  • Have an interest in marketing through writing articles, delivering presentations, and providing training.

Are calm, and calming, in a crisis.

Experience of one or more of the following is preferable but not essential – your application will be considered without directly relevant experience:

  • CQC enforcement
  • Safeguarding
  • Other regulatory and police investigations
  • Contract monitoring
  • Mental capacity and Court of Protection
  • Mental Health law
  • Inquests
  • Information law
  • Advising on complaints including Ombudsman investigations
  • Drafting contracts
  • Attracting new clients
About the role

You will be advising care home groups and other health and social care providers about a broad range of regulatory and public law matters.  This will often be in the context of a regulatory crisis, with clients facing enforcement action from a range of public authorities.  Your cases may attract media attention and you will be comfortable working as part of a team that may include the client and other advisors such as consultants and PR advisors.

The role will involve working remotely and with complete flexibility subject only to meeting:

  • A modest target of 900 billable hours annually.
  • Clients’ needs and deadlines.

You will share in the success you bring to Healthcare Counsel.  You will accordingly be paid 50% of any receipts above the 900 hours target.
