Managing a Healthcare Business

Managing a healthcare business on a day to day basis involves issues which are unique to providing services in the sector.  Whilst rewarding, it can be challenging and our specialists are experienced in providing solutions to the real problems you face. 

No business is perfect or risk free but the difference between a successful business and a struggling business can be the ability to manage risk areas.  The issues facing your healthcare business will be very different to those in other sectors and our specialists can help provide tailored advice to suit your needs. 

Our specialists can offer advice on a wide range of issues affecting your business including, for example:

  • Managing your workforce:  current sector issues include entitlement to pay whilst asleep which could have far reaching implications for any business which pays a flat rate for sleep-ins.
  • The impact of changes in legislation on your business: if the Human Rights Act is found to apply to care homes this could impact on the way you run your business.  The Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Act 2007 also comes into force on 6 April 2008 and may affect the way you run your business.
  • Health and safety issues:  this area of law is paramount to any healthcare business and is constantly changing.  We can provide advice on any existing or new areas of law such as the introduction of new fire safety laws.
  • Service users financial affairs: do you know how you should manage the financial affairs of service users who lack sufficient mental capacity to do so on their own?  If not, we can provide you with guidance.
