As a healthcare organisation, you want the best for your organisation, your employees and your clients. This involves you having to deal with specific legislation that determines how you should handle the care you provide: healthcare law. This governs, for example, the quality of care, the rights of clients, and the rights and duties of healthcare providers.
This legislation also covers other aspects of healthcare, such as procurement, shareholdings, mergers and acquisitions and the way public authorities organise healthcare for their users. This means healthcare organisations have a social responsibility. All of the above makes healthcare law a wide-ranging and complex area of law, which is also constantly evolving.
