If your organisation is being investigated or prosecuted by a healthcare regulator, such as the Care Quality Commission, you may require legal representation.
Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) statistics show that in 2011/12, it opened a total of 291 compliance investigations into devices being used in healthcare, and seized over £8 million in medicines. Showing just how active regulators are in cracking down where firms haven’t followed guidelines.
Having your business investigated or your premises searched can be stressful and negatively affect your company, but you can access expert legal advice to help you by contacting the solicitors at First4lawyers.
What are healthcare regulatory services?
If your organisation is subject to an investigation, you might require law advice or representation, particularly if it results in legal action being taken against you.
Healthcare regulatory legal services cover every stage of proceedings, from initial guidance following a premises search right through to representation in court cases and tribunals – which can quite quickly become complicated and require expert knowledge.
It is important to seek representation from solicitors with experience of disciplinary and regulatory law to give you and your business the best chance of seeing the result you want.
