Regulatory Consulting

At the forefront of the private and voluntary Irish nursing home market, our team can partner on every aspect of your business from start to finish. We assist with applications for the establishment and registration of new registered providers, re-registration, and completion of documents including Feedback Forms, Compliance Plans, Action Plans and Submissions. We also support our clients in on-going engagements with the National Treatment Purchase Fund, and all matters of State funding under the Nursing Home Support Scheme and other State funding arrangements.

Regulation is at an unprecedented level in the Irish private and voluntary healthcare sector. Providers are duty-bound to keep up to date with every development. We deliver education and training to operators, their management and staff to ensure regulatory compliance in governance and management requirements, contractual obligations, consumer protection obligations, fire safety related matters and data protection rules.

Banking and lending institutions are key stakeholders for all of our clients’ businesses. Loan agreements and security arrangements have long-term implications and consequences, especially if you face a challenge or contractual difficulty along the way.

It is smart to get advice and support at the outset before any agreements are made. Our multi-disciplinary team can work with your financial and tax advisors at the start, middle and end of any contract agreements to overcome short or medium term hurdles that come your way.
