We act only in the defence of healthcare professionals who are facing ever more numerous and complex regulatory issues. We have a team of specialists, including a former dentist, and we advise doctors, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals on every aspect of their professional life.These include:

  • Registration issues
  • Professional Conduct Investigations: initial investigation through to oral hearings, appeals and restoration applications
  • Primary Care: Performers List applications and Panels through to management issues and potential NCAS referrals
  • Disciplinary issues

For NHS pharmacists, we have expertise in dealing with market entry applications, including distance selling applications, and can represent parties if an oral hearing is arranged.  We can help with other regulatory queries for NHS pharmacists including consolidation applications, remuneration issues and breach notices.  More generally we have expertise in healthcare disputes, including fraud and criminal investigations, judicial review and inquests.  We can advise on medicinal products and device regulation and supply issues such as hub and spoke arrangements.

We do more than merely represent our healthcare clients at hearings. Our experience of the wider professional environment enables us to achieve the best possible outcomes while offering exceptional value for money. We are proud to act for a leading Medical & Dental Defence organisation and individual healthcare practitioners. But don’t take our word for it:

“Gordons instruct us regularly on specialist medical claims and regulatory work. Their close knit team has a wealth of experience and produces work of the highest standard. Gordons’ pragmatic approach enables us to work as a team, which invariably gives their clients an advantage”
