The private healthcare sector is under unprecedented pressure. Not only does it face daily operational difficulties and increasing financial pressures, not least as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is also subject to criticism and scrutiny by the media and the general public. With CQC enforcement on the rise, it is vital that providers ensure compliance, protect their interests and seek early assistance following crisis events. Not only does this help to manage the ongoing relationship with the regulator, it also assists in securing and preserving evidence, enabling a clear strategy to be determined.
Client support is led by Bill Dunkerley who has over a decade’s worth of experience in the sector, who has been described by the legal directories as, “the care home guru in the North West,” and, “a dynamic and inspiring leader and always gets excellent outcomes for his clients.. a clever, able and tactically astute solicitor.”
Clients describe Bill as, “so professional, diligent and exceedingly helpful.. I hold him in very high esteem! I have worked very closely with solicitors and Barristers over the last 30 years and they don’t get better than Bill. He is absolutely committed to his work, dependable and wholly reliable.”
