Health and social care

We act for individuals trying to secure services and treatment to meet their needs to representing campaign groups challenging closures of local services

Leigh Day’s human rights team act in a wide variety of cases concerning health and social care, from acting for individuals trying to secure services and treatment to meet their needs to representing campaign groups challenging closures of local services.

At some point in our lives the vast majority of us will require health and/or social care either in a hospital, a care home or in the community. From the Care Act to the Human Rights Act, there is a whole raft of legislation governing how these services should be delivered and when the NHS is required to pay for them.
