Hempsons furthers association with NHS

The firm has been appointed to the North West ­Collaborative Commercial Agency Legal Services Framework and NHS Procurement North East, adding to its appointment earlier in the year to Yorkshire and The Humber Commercial ­Procurement Collaborative Hub.

Hempsons is believed to be the only firm to have been awarded a place on all eight health and social care legal services panels in operation across ­England, including the NHS Litigation Authority and the Care Quality Commission.
