Jill Mason leads the healthcare and mental health law teams at Mills & Reeve. The team has more than 20 lawyers to provide support, proactive advice, risk management lessons, advocacy, training and media input. These are applied to a very wide range of patient-related issues.
Mason says: ‘My team and I are very conscious of the additional pressures that the cold climate and the Health and Social Care Act are bringing to bear on our clients.

These are just a few of the issues that we are working with our clients on on a daily basis.’
