Immigration law

International recruitment remains operationally critical across the but with Brexit and the reform of the UK immigration rules imminent, health and social care employers’ international recruitment strategies, processes and budgets will be impacted.

Our team of leading UK immigration lawyers help health and social care employers with all aspects of their UK immigration needs.  Through our strategic advice and managed migration services, we operate in support of inhouse HR teams or on a fully outsourced basis to ensure you operate competitively and in full compliance when employing overseas academics and support staff.

HR Consultancy

To meet the demands of an ageing population with more varied health conditions, the sector is undergoing a transformation in the provision of services, inevitably creating the need for new skills and experience to support implementation. Workforce planning and training must account for changes in the skills need both among lower-skilled care workers through to highly-skilled medical professionals. 

Our team of highly experienced HR consultants can support health and social care employers to improve the performance of their HR function and enhance the overall impact of HR projects.

In any organisation, people are the defining features of both commercial advantage and risk.
