Healthcare Law Training

The lawyers at RadcliffesLeBrasseur specialise in healthcare. We are therefore able to apply the relevant law based on our practical experience of providing solutions to our clients’ problems. Our advice is based on a close understanding of the healthcare sector.

As a result, we are often asked to speak at training events throughout the country, at Seminars and at Conferences.

We run our own training seminars at our offices but also travel to clients’ premises to run bespoke training sessions for their staff.

Training Benefits

The health sector is often a fast moving and publicity sensitive business. Healthcare staff are faced with increasingly wide ranging and complex responsibilities. Training is essential to ensure that they are up to date.
