Healthcare Regulation



We know that healthcare businesses are highly regulated. The people, the premises, the products and the services are all subject to a variety of rules and regulations.

For a number of years, Carter Bond has been serving primary healthcare professionals and their businesses very well. Whilst developing this practice, it has made us the preferred legal partner in the area to many doctors, dentists, opticians and pharmacists dealing with merging, acquiring and selling practices. 

We are familiar with the regulations, standards of practice and code of conducts of the General Medical Council, General Dental Council, General Optical Council and the General Pharmaceutical Council as well as conducting appeals and defending prosecutions before these regulatory bodies and their respective panels.

Carter Bond can assist with the following:

  • Registration and registration appeals;
  • Fitness to Practise matters (and disciplinary matters against doctors before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS)); and
  • Interim sanctions and reviews

Usually in the types of proceedings listed above, the regulatory body will have a legal team consisting of solicitors and/or barristers conducting prosecutions or representing the body in general. If you are a health professional that does not have access to fitness to practise legal advice and representation via a professional indemnity provider, then contact Carter Bond immediately.
