About Us

Training and consulting


DR Solicitors provides a number of training courses and educational events tailored for GPs, practice managers and other professionals involved in primary care services.  All of our trainers are experienced public speakers and educators, who deliver informative and interactive courses which are relatable and (hopefully) entertaining at times.

Consulting and Business Advisory

Clients are often asking us for strategy advice and help with developing and implementing business improvement plans. Advice may relate to addressing performance issues identified in contractual breach notices; designing processes for enhanced profitability and patient satisfaction; or business growth and acquisition.

We can quickly put together multi-disciplinary teams to successfully address highly complex problems requiring, for example, clinical and non-clinical professionals.

If you would like to discuss a particular issue, please contact Nils Christiansen in the first instance, who will be delighted to assist you.
