Healthcare Providers Charities

With unrivalled depth of experience in the Irish healthcare sector, we advise voluntary hospitals and many other healthcare providers operating in the areas of hospice care, intellectual and physical disability, mental health and non-acute healthcare on structuring, corporate governance and charity law issues.

We have vast experience advising section 38 and section 39 agencies on their obligations pursuant to charity law, company law (where applicable) and the governance requirements of the HSE. We have an in-depth understanding of, and practical experience advising on, the obligations imposed on section 38 and section 39 agencies by their Services Arrangement with the HSE, the Annual Compliance Statement, the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies (to the extent applicable) and the HSE Code (again, to the extent applicable).

We have advised “umbrella” bodies, representing the boards and management of healthcare agencies in relation to a variety of legal issues which affect the entire sector.
