DR Solicitors launched in October 2003 during the final preparations for the nGMS Contract. Our first clients asked us to prepare a Partnership Deed for their practice, and we are delighted to report that they remain clients of the firm to this day.
The last 10 years have seen huge changes for primary care and for DR Solicitors. We have worked on APMS contracts, AWP contracts, PMS reviews, walk-in clinics, GP-lead health centres, joint-ventures with private companies, LIFT schemes, PBC organisations and much more. Most recently, we have been heavily involved with the legal and business implications of the Health and Social Care Act.
It has been a fascinating time, but throughout it all we have strived to be true to our core objectives of providing an unrivalled level of service and depth of legal and industry expertise to medical professionals. We have built a team of highly experienced solicitors who are all experts in this area of law, and the firm still only works with medical professionals. Most other law firms staff their ‘healthcare departments’ with generalists who only occasionally come across a primary care practice.
If you are a regular subscriber to our newsletter, you may be aware of some of the recent recognition we have received; the GP Awards 2012; the Health Investor Awards 2012; the Lawyer Awards 2013. DR Solicitors is also recognised by the independent Chambers & Partners as leaders in our field of law, and 2 of our Solicitors are named as leading individuals.
We wish to thank our many loyal clients and our fantastic colleagues for making this 10 memorable years, and, after we have taken a moment or two to enjoy and mark our anniversary, we are looking forward to further developing our services to meet the changing needs of our clients over the next decade and beyond.
