Beachcrofts shuts office after NHS cut

Beachcroft Wansbroughs is closing its Sheffield office after the National Health Service Litigation Authority's (NHSLA) decision to remove the office from its panel (The Lawyer, 15 January).

Beachcrofts has lost NHSLA work in London and Sheffield, although it remains on the panel in Winchester and has won a new Bristol contract.

The decision to close Sheffield follows a review of the firm's Yorkshire operations to decide if the Leeds and Sheffield offices should merge.
